Ox Beetle (Strategus aloeus) comes with substrate for bedding. We can't guarantee life expectancy for wild captives but we will only list healthy ones without missing tarsi hoping it will live long.
Tips to breed healthy beetle.
1. New born adult does not start diet immediately. Wait until color of body darkened and give another a week or two to start feeding.
2. Feed them with fruit/ beetle jelly by cutting corner of the bottom case and place it upside down in the container. Purchase more jelly separately for feeding.
3. Never keep it under direct sunlight or extreme cold. Spray water frequently if substrate dries out quickly.
4. Keep the cover of the breeding container closed at all times and use rubber bend to secure for unexpected escape.
*Wild Captives can have minor deformation or missing tarsi and it is not subject to refund.
