Macropanesthia rhinoceros stuck in molt


Recommended Posts


My 1.5 year old rhino appears to be halfway through a molt and I fear that they are stuck. Everything progressed well for about 30 minutes, yet now they have been in the same spotĀ for a couple of hours and barely moving. Humidity is good, so I'm not sure what could have caused this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure what happened, but if it's stuck in it's molt there's not much you can do, and any attempts to remove it from it's shed by force would probably kill it... :(
