Life cycle of a Hercules beetle

Life cycle of a Hercules beetle

(1:22) The Hercules beetle is a rhinoceros beetle native to the rainforests of Central America, South America, Lesser Antilles, and the Andes. They are large beetles, with some males reaching 17.5 cm including the horn. Reports suggest the Hercules beetle is able to carry up to 850 times its body mass but actual measurements on a much smaller but relatively stronger species of rhinoceros beetle shows a carrying capacity only up to 100 times their body mass, at which point they can barely move.
