    Beetles?

    So, I've really really REALLY been wanting a beetle for quite some time. By 'beetle' I mean stag, rhino, hercules, etc.
    However, I can't seem to find any.
    Does anyone happen to know of a place where I can get some?

    Not sure if the direct link to vendors rule applies for insects like it does CPs (people are always linking to non-plant things like Lights and stuff) but insect author Peter Clausen at Bugs In Cyberspace sells Staghorn and other Beetles & larvae. He's a good shipper, anything I've gotten from him has always arrived alive and healthy.

    Just checked the link the site is being redone but there is an availability list still up. I hope he doesn't delete his care sheet archives, that was good reading!

    I'm looking for the Easter Hercules Beetle, Dynastes tityus. I joined a beetle forum, but there's not much activity on those forums and nobody is selling these. I'd be amazed if you can find one of them giant rhino beetles.
