This one is amazing! It is one of the most interesting and well known of the Giant African longhorn beetles. It can mostly be found in central Africa. It is said to be a master in disguise! It has such a close resemblance to the moss and bark it feeds on and the trees it climbs on. This is their means of defense, often using their colors to trick enemies which is called mimicry. The size of this beetle ranges from 50mm-100mm from its face to the rear of his shell BUT did you notice their EXTREMELY LONG ANTENNAE nearly 4 inches in length!! You must get this one! Males and females are similar but the antennae on males are longer. Tom Phipps is the photographer who does such an amazing job at close ups!  Look at those jaws!
