Thanks everyone. I have never seen one down here and now I got lucky and caught another one in a water bowl of my friend's king cobra cage!!

The two are being fed honey and are kept with coco fiber and rotted bugamvilla wood.

Hey, that's super cool! I've seen that bug in my books, but haven't encountered it before. Neat that you've found two! Is that a standard 16 ounce deli cup the beetle is in? It's always nice to have a size reference. I've suspected that beetle is rather small.

I saw a few of these in Wisconsin a few years ago. Good stuff! Do you know if yours are male and female?
