Very rare Dynastes hercules ssp: bleuzeni and paschoali! 2

A new update about my breeding with both very rare subspecies of Dynastes hercules!

Dynastes hercules paschoali: A very nice 130 mm male hatched from the 150 mm pupa (max. L3 weight 103 g):

I am very satisfied with this result and I hope to be able to continue my breeding with this subspecies (I have 3 females in breed). 3 more males have to hatch and there is still a male that could be bigger (an L3 larva of max. 111 g).

 

Dynastes hercules bleuzeni: I found some very nice pupae (most of them have a chance of becoming 130+ mm with even one possibility of getting a 135+ mm male)!

Amazing giant 158 mm long male pupa (max. L3 weight 102 g): maybe this will become a 135+ mm male!
