1. Hello Lauren,

    Thanks for sharing such lovely details about these wonderful beetles. We see them very frequently here in Cahuita too. My children love their soft shells–just like velvet.

    Keep the great Costa Rica stories coming,


    • Hi Sara,

      Wow I bet you see all kinds of interesting creatures in Cahuita. These beetles are actually very fascinating (And scare me way less than some of the spiders here!).

      Thanks for reading and pura vida!

    Hey there, I have never seen a rhinoceros beetle the size of the one you are holding in the photo. As much as I love insects, one that size would scare the living crap out of me..lol.. please continue to post your adventures in Costa Rica
