A few weeks ago, I went out to find queen ants, but what I found was far from an ant queen. I found a female stag beetle stopped dead in the middle of the sidewalk. I used a large test tube to collect her, and she had little to no reaction of being touched. For the next day, she didn’t really move, so I came to the conclusion that she was pregnant, adjusting to her new environment, or was on the road to death. Turns out, she just needed some time to adjust to the new home. She is quite beautiful, with hints of blue on her sides. I researched their diet, and immediately realized why my ants hadn’t been accepting protein jelly-It was for Rhino beetles. I quickly gave her some, and she devoured it. I have not physically touched her, due to the fact that those mandibles are quite strong. I would like to breed her in the future…
Any tips on finding males?
