    Hercules Beetle

    I believe that is a female hercules beetle, Dynastes tityus.

    Your welcome. I am not an entomologist but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. :wink:

    He's even named some of his discoveries after Cafe folks.

  7. It never ceases to amaze me! What an interesting group of members we have!

    Did some research -- this one is a female Eastern Hercules -- which is quite a bit smaller than some found in the tropics! Guess you could put a saddle on some of them!

    The males have very large horns -- figures huh!
