All the bugs at our place in the Texas Hill Country are gynormous. Can you ID what kind of beetle this is? Thanks so much!

Ox Beetle we believe

Ox Beetle we believe

Dear Mark and  Brenda,
Your image, though interesting, lacks critical detail.  This is definitely a Scarab Beetle in the family Scarabaeidae, and we suspect it is an Ox Beetle in the genus
Strategus.  Male Ox Beetles have horns.  Females do not.  You can learn more about Ox Beetles on BugGuide.
