Trypoxylus dichotoma x 1 Larvae 3rd Instar
if you are looking to have a go at keeping rhinoceros beetles but have not done so before, the Japanese Rhinoceros Beetle is a great choice. They are much faster at developing than giant rhinos such as dynastes and are also much more forgiving when it comes to fluctuating conditions.
Larvae feed on decayed oak/beach but prefer more wood in the substrate than leaves. Flake soil can also be use.
Adults feed on ripe fruit and beetle jelly
Development from egg to adult - 12-18 months
Adult size - Males 40 -80mm Females 40-60mm
