Massive Scarab Beetles For Feeding to Ants

41058 ratings | 1581863 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!

Killing the grubs would’ve been a weird move anyway. If I owned ants, I would’ve waited until the larvae grew into fat beetles before killing them and giving them to the ants
FoxySonia (14 days ago)
I think that most of the people that thumb down the video did it without actually watching it and because of the title, which made them believe that you fed the beetles to the ants. If they had watched the video, they would have known that you didn't. I'm glad you didn't, as I like beetles, and I don't like roaches, but even roaches I wouldn't be able to cut in half with scissors, yet I don't mind them becoming the meal of other insects and animals.
SmolAndrogChild (14 days ago)
AntsCanada noooooo!! Whyyyyy? The ants would have LOVED the meaty beetle larva!! I understand, I mean I thought it was cute too, but what about the happiness of your ants??!

Zayden unicorn (14 days ago)
For something so small that I would normally squish, I felt really upset when you took the scissors to it
Yousor0 (14 days ago)
Well trees are basically the motionless kind of humans. We take the necessary nutrients we need. Store it. Spend that said nutrient and some time later die of either natural causes or too much damage. Plus that’s why they have those huge mandibles because they evolved bite through the fibers. (I’m such a nerd at science omg hahahahha)

Those beetles are delicious if it fell to a great Cook's hand😋 it became a famous dish in our place not only it helps us/the farmers about those beetles it also fills our stomach(we only hunt for beetles if it grown in large number so our place won't be destructed it means balancing the Eco system)

Sorry I have a soft heart but... You did it the right way, you did not cut the larvae in half. To be honest I almost cried cause of that, thank you AntsCanada for not killing it. It's probably the most hardest decision but it's the right thing.
