The Siamese rhinoceros beetle or fighting beetle, Xylotrupes gideon, is a species of scarab beetle that is particularly known for its role in insect fighting in Thailand. This beetle utilizes its biforcated horns to try to knock other males off a tree or rock when they smell a female. The Siamese Rhino also makes a cute hissing squeak when disturbed.
