Rhinocerus Beetle?

Hi Patty,
More correctly, Rhinoceros Beetle is a general term to describe beetles in the Scarab Beetle subfamily Dynastinae. The species is an Eastern Hercules Beetle, Dynastes tityus, though BugGuide lists both Rhinoceros Beetle and Unicorn Beetle as alternate names for this magnificent species.
