Description

Impressive Chalcosoma Atlas Beetle specimen mounted on 11"x14" white mat in black aluminum frame measuring 12.5"x15.25"

The Atlas Rhino is not nearly as ferocious as it appears. Kept as a pet in parts of Southeast Asia, it feeds on over-ripe fruits and tree sap. The lustrous, glossy exoskeleton of this beetle is especially strong to protect it from predators like monkeys and birds or undergoing damage during the male's battles over females.
