Trio Goliathus goliatus beetles
A beautiful and very large beetle.
Rearing their larvae is not suitable for beginners, unless you are very committed. Nevertheless, these are exceptionally beautiful beetles to watch and have.
I initially wanted to sell them seperately while still inactive, they were €80 for the male and €70 per female, adding up to a total of €220. Sold as a trio you are getting a €20 discount.
Look: varying matte patterns of bright white, bright red and black.
Imago: male and female look different as males have a fork shaped horn and very long front legs.
size 65 mm for the females – 79 mm for the male
Natural habitat : West and Central Africa
These beetles were captive bred in Belgium
Food for the adult beetle: ripe fruit, beetle jelly
temp/hygro: 20°C – 30 °C / 70%-90%
Food for the larva: L1 flakesoil and some protein, as of L2 the larvae switches to protein only and the used substrate has no importance (peat moss, coco choir, compost, etc)
Communal or individual rearing of the larva: strictly individual with daily protein feedings.
cycle completion: 12-16 months. generally 6 months as a larva, 3-6 months in cocoon, and then another 4-6 months as and adult beetle.
