Ox Beetles (Strategus antaeus) - the impressive major male

You may remember my post on raising Ox Beetles. I thought I'd share some nice photos of a major male. The white grains that look like sugar are actually quartzite sand grains that are common in Florida.










 
Love that big black orb for an eye and look at that sunburst of hair at the base of the antenna
