For $10.99 you will received ONE (1) LIVE Flawed Blue Death Feigning beetle.

These popular and amazing insects are known to live many years as adults (no guarantees though they don't us how old they are). Asbolus verrucosus, their common name comes from their tendency to play dead when bothered, combined with a powder blue colored coating that protects them from the sun. They feed well bread, carrots, potatoes, and various fruits or veggies. THEY even are used in scorpion cages to clean up dead crickets and dubias that the scorpion didn't eat before they stink. Desert Hairy Scorpions do not mess with or like them, how cool is that?! They don't need additional humidity or water, though a piece of bark to hide under and get all the moisture they need, water-wise, from the foods they eat.
If they get wet they turn a black color, but their pale blue coloration reappears after they dry out a few days later. These are very active beetles, great for display and safe to hold in your hands! They prefer a dry, sandy substrate as dirt may begin to accumulate on their legs and feet if it's too moist. They are not able to climb glass or plastic tank walls. They do not fly. Recommended ages 4 and up!

Please Note: Buy as many as you would like for the same shipping price of $9.99. Due to regulations USA shipping ONLY. If you have an address I can ship to within the US, that is fine as well, but I am not going to ship out of the country. Thank you!  If your daytime temps are below 40 degrees, please contact us right away after you order to make sure your live order arrives safely by adding a heat pack.  Expected arrival may be sooner than estimated as we ship USPS Priority Mail with normal arrival time in 2/3 postal days. To track for delivery is vital for Live Orders. Please make sure someone is home,I can only guarantee live arrival if you have someone to bring the package inside. Post tracking provides me with this information so I will know if it was hand delivered or left on porch. I ship Monday through Wednesday only to ensure no delays (sometimes on saturday). Shipping is $9.99 via Priority Mail. While you can buy as many of these live beetles you want for the same shipping, I can not combine with other auctions I have listed.

Guaranteed to arrive alive (but please note they might be playing dead, haha) So don't worry if they are in the defensive position, their legs will be stiff, but if they are dead they will be absolutely limber, I want my buyers happy, so please contact me with issues before leaving feedback. Thank you!
