We found this awesome looking creature right outside of our school in Howard County Maryland on Sept. 1st, 2010. It has a greenish-yellow body with black spots and two horns; one over the other. Can you tell us what species it is??

Dear Middle School Students,
Your beautiful male Eastern Male Hercules Beetle, Dynastes tityus, is the heaviest beetle native to North America. He is also known as a Rhinoceros Beetle. The female has no horns.
