What type of Beetle is this?
Hi
I came across this bug in my front garden on the weekend, my mom thought it was a giant cockroach but when i got closer I realised it was some type of beetle. I live on the island of Jamaica in the middle of the capitol city Kingston. I am a National Geographic fan but had never seen this before and certainly not in my front yard?

Hi Maria,
This is a Giant Metallic Ceiba Borer, Euchroma gigantea. It is found in many parts of Central and South America.
