General
The Japanese rhinoceros beetle (Allomyrina dichotoma), Japanese horned beetle, or kabutomushi is a species of rhinoceros beetle

Size
The beetles have a thick brown shell and are just over 2 inches in length.

Description
The Japanese rhinoceros beetle is so named for the large horn that protrudes upwards from the front of the beetle's head. The beetles have a thick brown shell and are just over 2 inches in length. The horn has two components. The first is a shorter horn on the top of the head and the second is a larger and longer horn that emerges from the front of the beetle's head just like a rhino's horn.

Distribution
It is found in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China.

Lifecycle
The Japanese rhinoceros beetle is not a particularly long-lived animal. One of the reasons that they are raised in captivity and sold as pets is so that children get them as young as possible. Longer lived variety of beetles are sometimes gathered from the wild instead. On average, a Japanese rhinoceros beetle lives for around one year.
