Bayourebel,

That is a male "Ox Beetle": Strategus aloeus. Pretty common in Louisiana. It is from the "Rhinoceros Beetle" subfamily of the Scarab beetle family. Adults active late spring to early fall.

I seen beetles like this in Costa Rica. I have a photo somewhere. They were huge over there. I'll try to find the photo.

Hi Bayourbell!

Nice photo!
At the Moment I work in Zurich,
Maybe I can find something exotic there, but probably not
as exotic as yours ;-)

Problem being, when I get out of the company,
I am so exhausted, I just walk home and thats it.

Maybe that is why everything is a bit calmer on this forum,
everybody is bustling about, scared to make hay as long as the sun
did not sink completly or the thunderstorm broke loose.

Cheers,
Michael

Yup. Just saw it, was happy that Bayou rebel did post again.
Somone had bumped it up I guess.
Sadly, Byou rebel was not posting new stuff.

And, btw. you are an old processer ;-)
