Beetle

As I was walking back to my tent last night after brushing my teeth I heard a colossal insect crash land behind me and knew I was in for a treat. It wasn’t too hard to find this guy, he was about 2 inches long! He was very strong and a bit hard to hold on to until I grabbed him by the horn, out of reach of his legs. According to the Internet his name is Oryctes nasicornis. I set him free again but he sure was neat.
