My Current Availables - Various Giant / Tropical Beetles - 27 November 2011

Hello everyone, here are my current spares that are available for sale / exchange as of 19th December 2011 - UK delivery is still possible at the moment, I use heatpacks when necessary.
For international orders, it will be a few months until the weather is warm enough to ship larvae safely again, but feel free to contact me and discuss what you want next year.
For items shown as 'available to order'; these come from my beetle breeding friends and so there will be a short delay between me receiving your payment and you receiving the beetles / larvae.
Please email me with any enquiries: pendemarc@yahoo.com
I promise I will try to find the time to write some helpful articles on beetle rearing soon, as I had intended when I created this blog but have not yet found the time to do!
Please see my RFUK forum advert as well as this Blog:
Also please see my photobucket album which has some nice photos of species in my collection from the past and present:

Anyway, currently available / available to order are (in no particular order):

For those of you that may be uncertain, an 'imago' is the adult form - the beetle.
The photos are examples and not necessarily the exact individual you will receive.
A 'pair' = 1 male and 1 female.
I will let you know the postage costs when you let me know what you want and how fast you need it :o)
I have quite a low quantity of most species so please be quick to avoid disappointment!

I'm afraid that I can't offer any guarantees on the lifespan of these insects. The life of individuals varies greatly, some live more than twice as long as others, and vice versa, this is natures way!
Many thanks,
André - pet_insects
