    I am new to this forum and new to insect keeping. I am wondering if anyone in here has any CotiCotinis mutabilis for sale? I believe the current beetle i own is a Cotinis mutabilis? But if someone can confirm that would be wonderful.

    Also I just bought a new terrarium today for my new friend but wondering on substrate? I have been feeding my beetle peaches, grapes, and figs. Anything else I should include in the diet? Thank you :)

    Welcome to the forum! I believe it's still somewhat early in the season for those, so I'm not sure if anyone has any right now. You may want to post in the For Sale section, where you'll likely have more luck.

    You can also do a search for that species and see who has been selling them in the past. Maybe contact them directly and they can hold some for you if they still have them.

    Thank you so much! I’m new here so I’m still trying to figure everything out. I live in California and I do have one beetle. I’ve been seeing them fly around. So is what I’m seeing the figeater or is it something similar?

    If you're seeing a sizable green beetle flying around it's probably C. mutabilis.
