Rhinoceros Beetle

One dark night we heard a strange hissing noise. This is a worry when you live in the tropics in a house that is open to wildlife. On investigation the hiss was regular and occurred whenever we walked past this particlur post on our deck. Once we worked out that it couldn’t be a snake we got close enough to find this feisty little Rhinoceros Beetle. One of the largest kinds of beetle.

We have often seen them since. Boomer is particularly fascinated. He so wants to play with them.
