Rhinoceros beetle!!

Sorry for this random post, but I found a really big insect (well to us Germans lol) on the street, when I came home from grocery shopping!! 😯
I put him onto my hand straight away and brought it to my home to let my kids see it. I’ve never seen such a big beetle here before lol (just in Japan I saw bigger ones haha)

May I introduce you:

The (European) Rhinoceros beetle!! 😀 😀

I wanted to measure him to let you see how big it is:

Hey! Don’t run!! You look like a cockroach on this pic!! LOL 😆

Ahh much better, ok… so it’s about 4cm tall, roughly 1,5 inch 😉

After we studied him enough we let him out again in our garden and put him on a tree trunk:

Such a beautiful bug!! Bye bye, it was nice to meet you! 😀

  10. Mayu, you….you….you put it into your HAND?! Like, you PICKED IT UP! 😯 If I had saw that beetle, let alone picked it up, I would run away as fast as my legs would take me and start screaming! 😥 You’re brave.

    • xP I played with bugs from when I was very young, lol, I teased my brother holding him earthworms in front of his face, then he always run away 😆

      • Eww, earthworms… 😯 My brother and sister once touched an earthworm, but not me… it looks so… squishy… 😦

  12. Wow, I can’t believe you actually held that beetle.I’m really scared of bugs.If I saw that beetle I would do the same thing lightshine would do.

    • I’m not really scared of bugs, I’m deathly terrified of bugs. 😆
