The listing is for 1x beetle larva, of a rare species of Vietnamese rhino beetle that is very closely related to the iconic Japanese Rhino Beetle. Although males of both species are similar in appearance, this species possesses extra barbs on their cephalic horn and have a more rugged appearance. Females of this species look very different however due to their highly glossed body.

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.
