Common name - Japanese Rhinoceros Beetle "Red Devil"
Scientific name - Trypoxylus (Allomyrina) dichotomus "Red Devil"

The listing is for 1x beetle larva, of a RARE, selectively bred bloodline from Japan, which are characterised by red/pink eyes (random chance of either red or pink) together with an intense red body that does not compare to other reddish bodied bloodlines.

Normal adults of the Japanese Rhino Beetle are black/ brown bodied with black eyes, but this pedigree has been selectively bred for near 10 generations to isolate characteristics that bring out the underlying red colouration in this species.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Japan.

The adult beetles feed on a variety of fruits such as banana, apple, pear, peach and watermelon. The larvae feed on decaying wood and leaf litter.
