The Complete Guide to Rearing The Eastern Hercules Beetle- Orin McMonigle (E&A)


Oct 28, 2011

This book is a definite MUST have for the beginner Rhinoceros beetle owner.
It's basically a long and detailed, but easy to read, care sheet, covering all subjects such as breeding, larval care, housing, substrate etc.
It's 40 pages long including the acknowledgments, glossary, pictures etc.
So it's not like you're reading a novel, but it's definitely enough information on knowing how to care for this species.
Most of the book is in black and white, but the cover and 2 pages of pictures are in full, beautiful color.
It gives pictures of all explanations, when it talks about the larval instars, it shows pictures of the different instars etc.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that's just the least bit interested, to be honest, I don't think this species is for me after reading this book, but
obviously thats not going to be the case for everyone. But I will still use this book as an informative reference in the future. I will without a doubt buy more
of Elytra and Antennae's books.
