This is a rhinoceros beetle. They are herbivores, they are very strong and use there great strength and the projection on there face to burrow into leaf litter and soil. The horns on males are also used to fight for females. This beetle is a male, females only gabe a small bump instead of a full horn. The beetles sometimes rub their wing cases against their abdomen to make a hissing sound to scare off predators
