Plucky Rhinoceros Beetle in Chiang Mai City Center

Crazy beetle! I think it was looking for shade which it eventually found. But, this is right in the city center of Chiang Mai...normally something this brown with 6 legs is a cockroach there.


  1. Actually Chris its looking for a bit of Nookie its that time of year where the Rhinoceros Beetle comes out from hiding and starts the yearly mating search. The Thais also fight these Beetles and basically they keep them on Strings and put them on a Banboo stick where they try to knock each other off the stick last Beetle standing is the winners check it out on

    1. Oh forgot to say they also eat them stir fried :)

    2. I prefer mine uneaten. Thanks for the info!
