Hercules (Dynastes Hercules) is the world’s most famous rhinoceros beetle and it’s also the largest of all – found only in South America.  Believe it or not, these beetles can lift more than 500 times their own weight (it could theoretically hold a banana in its hands).  Males fight each other over the large unhorned female!  They actually pick each other up using their long scissor-like head-horns and they can toss each other around the jungle!!!   They fight for territory and the female and the best man wins both.   These large males are hard to come by.....   I received only a few and they vary in intensity of olive green color and spot patterns over its shell.  They are all spectacular, and HUGE examples!
