  1. 8.19.2013 Yesterday I finally found a male Eastern Hercules beetle while it was raining and unseasonably cold.  The poor thing had turned itself over in the rain and had turned completely black from stress.  I set it up as best I could at work until I made it home and then offered a strawberry(which it ate!), and a dry place to stay until the rain passed. Today we let it go in the leaf litter near a little lake by our house.

    Last year I caught 2 females and set free in the same place, but this was the first time that I had ever seen a male alive!  <3
