Dynastes satanas rarity

Lately, I have been very fortunate to breed the (now endangered) species Dynastes satanas. This species has recently been included in the CITES II regulation for endangered species (luckily after I obtained a few L3 larvae). Despite this inclusion, the clearcutting of the Bolivian rainforest continues instead of implementing the actually needed conservation (and restoration as well as re-expansion) of the natural habitat of this species, which is in fact the same rainforest.

This 70 mm male (L3 around 60 g) is the only alive specimen I have, next to a female which has been fertilized and hopefully is laying some eggs by now.
