Hercules Beetle (Dynastes hercules)


SKU: N/A Categories: , Tag:


Hercules beetles are a very large species of rhinoceros beetle. In fact, they are the longest beetle in the world. Adult males can reach up to 7 inches in length! Even though they are massive, Hercules Beetles can still fly and sound like a tiny helicopter when they do so. They live in the rainforests of Central and South America. They spend a large portion of their lives as grubs, eating and living in large rotting logs on the forest floor. The adults are sexually dimorphic, meaning that males and females look different from each-other.
