Location: Kruger national Park, South Africa
Thought I’d send my prize photo of a rhino beetle. It was on the same wall as the Southern Cat’s-Eyed Emperor moth, but on a different night. I was told by a guide that I am very lucky to have seen this beetle. Trying to photograph it at night under CFLs was a trick.
Thanks again for IDing the moth.
We believe this is a Dung Beetle, not a Rhino Beetle. Both are classified as Scarab Beetles. It might be Copris elphener which is pictured on PHotograph s from South Africa.
Oh, rats! I see what you mean. But when I Googled rhino beetle, I saw photos identical to mine. Oh,well, I find dung beetles fascinating.
