It also seems to be the year for these amazing beetles in the wild as for the first time since moving to Kuranda in 2010 we have seen three wild specimens – all in the last week! One flew to our light sheet and the one pictured below flew into our neighbour’s bedroom! Although not as large as some of the captive bred specimens we have, it’s great to see these wild beetles turning up. It certainly indicates they are doing quite well in the local rainforest.
