The listing is for 1x, adult male (emerged April 2021), of a rhino beetle species that holds the record for being the heaviest insect in the world.

Photo of actual male in the listing is photo no.4. His wings did not close properly at the tips, but it will not affect his health in any way.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with the stock originating from Peru.

Species in the Megasoma genus are one of the largest group of rhino beetles, and the larvae of this particular species holds the world record for insect weight at up to 230g, which is almost equivalent to 10 Roborovski hamsters.

The adult beetles feed on a variety of fruits such as banana, apple, pear, peach and watermelon. The larvae feed on decaying wood and leaf litter.
