The Atlas Beetle belongs to the Scarabaeidae family. Chalcosoma atlas, like other beetles of the genus Chalcosoma, is remarkable for its size. It can reach a length of about 25–60 millimetres (0.98–2.36 in) in the females. The males have horns on that they use to fight with each other to gain mating rights with females. This Beetle has been especially spread by our entomology specialists to show its huge wingspan and beauty.
