Hercules Beetle in Alpharetta GA
Saw this Hercules Beetle on my front door step the other morning. I have never seen one before and thought you might be able to use a clear picture of his back. When I gently urged him off the door step (so my wife and son would not accidentally step on him) he was noticeably hard to move and had a great grip on the door frame. Have no fear I got him to safety and haven’t seen him since. Great website.

Hi Gabe,
Thanks for sending us your photograph of an Eastern Hercules Beetle, Dynastes tityus, with the cellular phone for scale.
