Atlas beetle

General
The Atlas beetle (Chalcosoma atlas) is a species of beetle belonging to the Scarabaeidae family.

Size
It can reach a length of about 25–60 millimetres (0.98–2.36 in) in the females. As common in some Scarabaeidae, the males are larger than the females, reaching a length of about 60–130 millimetres (2.4–5.1 in).

Description
The males have specialised horns on the head and thorax that they use to fight with each other to gain mating rights with females. The Atlas beetle differs from other Chalcosoma species (such as C. caucasus) in the end of the cephalic (head) horn of the Atlas, which is broadened.

Distribution
This species can be found in southern Asia, especially Indonesia.

Life cycle
nverified reports exist of larvae that live together fighting to the death if there's not enough space or food.
