Rhinoceros Beetle

Please Help!!!
Hi Bugman,
Your site is amazing!!! I found this little guy dead on a concrete pad in my home town of Elberton, in the northeast region of Georgia. I am almost certain that he is in the scarab family, but I can’t find any information on him specifically. I am starting my own insect collection, and would like to know his name so I can accurately describe him. Thanks for your help.

Hi Chris,
This scarab is commonly called the Rhinoceros Beetle. Its scientific name is Xyloryctes jamaicensis.
