-Sulawesi Golden Stag Beetle-

Cyclommatus metallifer      


-Beautiful, metallic stag beetles native to Sulawesi and surrounding Indonesian islands. Major males can display impressively large forks. 


-Hailing from tropical forests, the larvae bore through fallen hardwood. Care for larvae is straightforward, they can be kept on fermented flake soil, or kinshi substrate. The adults do well in ventilated pastic tubs with deep layers of substrate with chunks of wood to cling too. Adults will accept commercial beetle jellies and  overripe fruit. 


-Adult males can vary in size due to minor or major development, but can be 1-3". Females will be more consistent at around 1" in length.
