Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Megathiris detruncata are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Megathiris detruncata, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Megathiris detruncata, try breeding yourself.
