Megasoma sleeperi Elephant Beetle Larva


4 in stock


Well, well, well! Megasoma sleeperi is the unicorn of rhino beetles in the United States. Check eBay’s completed items sections right now and you’ll see them available as deadstock pairs for over $200 per pair. This species had never, NEVER been available to the mainstream US pet beetle hobby before our first offering of them in 2019 because they are extremely hard to obtain. Offering captive bred larvae of these rarest of the rare.

Available as L2 larvae. They take under a year to mature on a quality substrate and go through 3 larval instars before pupating and becoming adults.

Sleeper’s Elephant Beetle is a United States species, a relative of the ginormous elephant beetles in Central and South America. These occupy a small pocket of California and are notoriously hard to collect. Though the US species is much smaller, they are still good sized beetles and their value as deadstock is much higher than that of their giant cousins.

These feed on our premium oak flake soil product in the links below, or properly decayed wood from various hardwood trees which you can collect.
