These beetles seem to be very rare, or either i`m not at the right place at the right time.
I was very glad to be able to capture this large female a few nights ago.
More later,,

Nice. I've seen these before a few times. Not very common.

Seem to be mostly in the south states and going down into central America etc. Checked her out today, looks really good, feeding her mostly fruits.
She stays in the substrate most of the time. Could be a while before I know if she was bred.
