Burmese beetle mimic nymphs!

These are my new Ergaula capucina nymphs that I ordered from Peter. I have been feeding them dead leaves, and dog food. Their substrate is made of coconut fiber and sphagnum moss. These guys apparently like it on the moist side. Like other polyphagids, they burrow a lot, and are a little hairy as nymphs. Also, they can take a year or two to mature. They are very cute, and kinda chubby! Here are some pics!

I am really enjoying these, and I look forward to breeding this species in the future! Hope you guys enjoy! :)
