Massive Scarab Beetles For Feeding to Ants

41664 ratings | 1620141 views
Scarab beetles are my favourite beetles of all time! Many species are huge, possessing unique spines and horns of various sizes and shapes. For Canadian Thanksgiving, I managed to get my hands on a bin full of scarab beetles, rhinoceros beetles to be exact (Xylotrupes gideon philippinensis), to feed to my ant colonies. The massive scarab beetle grubs were monstrous and meaty creatures, with powerful mandibles and hairy bodies. The larvae eat decaying wood and plant matter, and grow to become absolutely massive beetles. When it came time to feed the grubs to my ant colonies, however, something happened that changed the entire plan and fate of the young beetles. Hope you enjoy this week's video! Ant love forever!

Yes, they have sexual reproduction. Most animals or just any living creature usually do. It's not that all surprising but I'm kind of surprised he put that image in a pg video lol.

My answer when i heard the AC question: Because you have to seperate the other rhino beetle larvae because they might bite the other rhino beetle larvae that might kill them, which is sad. That's all thx

Maybe the reason they weren't burrowing effectively was because the Coco peat was to clump?

they may not have gotten a nice big meal, but that's not as bad as getting eaten alive by parasitic mites.

I'm kind of wondering now which of the gladiators you almost murdered here. Knowing how important they become later, seeing that one of them almost met such a gruesome end is quite disturbing.

I love this channel so much! The feels for these tiny creatures! If I had a choice to feed the beetle larva old word or tree roots, I'd definitely go 4 the roots cause they have lots of vitamins the beetles by my house love to eat the zucchini plants they destroy everything lol

(i know im late but idc i still want to answer) AC Question: You had to separate the beetle larvae because if they were together, they might fight and end up being harmed or potentially killed by another beetle.
