Massive Scarab Beetles For Feeding to Ants

37480 ratings | 1354524 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!

When I heard you were getting beetles, my heart fluttered. I love beetles, they're one of my favourite animals on earth, especially scarabs! And, I really love their larvae...I do truly find them cute, helpless little...wiggly guys. As soon as you announced you were using them to feed the ants, my heart sank. And I felt worse and worse as the inevitable became clearer. By the time you had the had the grub in place to kill, I legit felt myself getting upset. (I guess that's just how much I adore beetles, lol) Once you had the scissors in position and started to count down, I felt like I was actually going to cry. Whyyy? Why the wiggly baby?! I'm so happy that you chose to keep these grubs, AntsCanada. I feel like if you had used them as food, you would have missed out on the amazing experience of Beetle keeping. They're sociable and interesting animals, and I'm beyond ecstatic that a favourite entomology channel of mine is going to have beetles!!

I wish I could be as passionate as you are about ants about...anything. It is incredibly fascinating to listen to you discuss your collection and thought process for how you go about things. Your editing and production are incredible, and you offered a full piece of content without making me click on another video to see 'how it turned out'. Keep up the great work, look at these comments...we all love it.

when they're grown adults they'll flip other beetles off trees for dominance. you should try to do something like this, but put a net at the bottom to catch them.

Two questions, did you break apart the big piece of wood and check for larvae burrowed inside, and how come you dont use some of the shipping material in their grow chambers?
