What to feed them?


Recommended Posts

I just found on the ground a female Dynastes tityus, I was going to keep her only if I can provide the necessary care she requires. I have been reading that they eat tree sap in the wild, I have read on forums that people feed them maple syrup & fruits(watermelon & grapes). Is this enough to keep them alive & healthy, or does the tree sap provide something that we cannot give them in captivity? Thanks in advance for the help here.

maple syrup & fruits(watermelon & grapes).

This should be about right. Try some honey too.
