FRAME SIZE:  9 1/4″ x 12″ x 2.5″


 

Description

This framed Rhinoceros beetle is one of the strongest creatures on earth and can carry 800 times its own weight. That would be equivalent to a human carrying over 70 cars. Scientists believe the beetle has become so strong in order to forage through heavy litter on the jungle floor and to dig its way to safety.

The Framed Rhino Beetle is encased in a museum quality shadowbox with 99% UV blocking glass and definitely a unique piece of framed wall art.

Rhino beetle without wings spread also available.  Learn more about Rhinoceros Beetles in our blog.
