I bought a preserved Atlas Beetle (chalcosoma caucasus) at a fair, really expensive by the way! The guy who sold it actually breeds them himself here in NY, is there sites you can buy them as pets in the U.S., and other large pet beetles? I want one male as a pet (not to breed). I heard they make good pets and eat fruit like apples and bananas, but dont live long, but that's ok to me.
