Excellent work! One would think that predacious, relatively long-lived, and attractive scarabs would be popular in the hobby, but you're the first I've seen who's raised them!

I had a big culture for seven generations, traded out quite a few pairs on ab & pb, but when I lost the stock I could never find stock again. I don't believe anyone bred any of the pairs. It is a sort of common species in the south but finding someone to collect them is not so easy (they seldom come to lights like Dynastes). It would be nice to see this species around again. I hope Cariblatta lutea ends up with a ton of extra pairs.

There are several members on beetleforum who had raised/is raising this species so hopefully they'll become more popular in the future :)

I plan on saving only two pairs for each generation, and trade off all the extras so hopefully I'll be able to get enough specimens available in the hobby for people to breed :)
