About

These creatures are found in the warm jungles and forests of the world and spend their days searching for plants, fruits, and berries on which to sustain themselves. An adult rhinoceros beetle is about 12 feet long.

Giant rhinoceros beetles charge opponents, biting with their razor sharp mandibles and slashing with their horn.
