Hercules Beetle at Papillote

It’s one of the largest beetles on the planet, and this full-strength edition of the gargantuan Hercules Beetle (Dynastes hercules) recently made a cameo appearance just outside Papillote’s Rainforest Restaurant. Papillote proprietor Anne Jno-Baptiste captured the visit with her camera, then relocated the big fellow to a safer place at the gates to Papillote Tropical Gardens. Anne says it is the first Hercules she’s seen in years.
