Hercules Beetle

dynastes nasty

We have been patiently waiting and finally we had the first specimen of Dynastes hercules arrive at MTCF at 5AM on May 28th shortly before dawn. This is the largest Dynastes beetle in Central America and is aptly named as it can drag up to 8kg, over 850 times it own weight. This is an awesome beetle.
