Dynastes neptunus rouchei breeding 2

It's been a while since the last follow-up of this rare subspecies of Dynastes neptunus.

All male larvae have currently reached weights over 85 g (up to 105 g), while females remain at 55-60 g. One female has already made her pupal cell (last weight 57 g), meaning her larval cycle only lasted 1 year and 7 months, which is very fast for this species (usually, the larval cycle can take up to 3 years). With these weights for males, 120 - 130+ mm is a possibility!
