This species is reported to be able to carry up to 850 times its own body weight (!) hence the name. Most of the Hercules beetles life cycle is spent underground as a larva, which can be more than two years! As an adult they are rather short lived (a matter of months). During this time their main focus is to reproduce. 

Dynastes hercules specimen in a premium open grain wooden frame. The scientific and common names are printed on acid free card and the frame is sealed with silicone to keep the specimens safe from hungry museum beetles and other such pests. 

Care & Maintenance
