Food for adult Rhinobeetles

in the wild adult Rhinobeetles are largely fruit eaters. They live in and around tropical jungles with easy access to ripe and even rotting fruit,sugar cane and tree sap.

It is quite normal to feed the animal pieces of fruit and they in particular like very ripe fruit like bananas. However the issue with these foodstuffs is that they go very quickly from ripe to rotten and attract pests.

In the far east a wide range of hygenic foods based on a pasteurised jelly and supplemented with vitamins and fruit extracts have proved just as edible and much easier to manage. 

You will find a range of different "beetle jelly" flavours in our shop
