Rhinoceros Beetles

The Rhinoceros beetle is called “Oryctes Nasicornis” in Latin, the name of the beetle that is called Rhinoceros in our country. This insect species is known to be the world’s strongest insect among the insect species because it has the property of transporting up to 30 times the weight of the insect species. The rhinoceros has 4 cm in length and 6 cm in width due to its structure and there is a horny structure due to cuticular metamorphosis in the head region of the body. This insect species is also common in the Mediterranean basin, northern Africa, the Middle East, and Pakistan, and is naturally spreading and living on these geographical sites as anatomical structures. Many such insects are of the rare insect species that attract attention to the hobbyist sinus.

The rhinoceros beetle is known for its long horn, which is huge in size compared to other insect species. There is a rhino-horn-like protrusion in the front region of the head of the male rhinoceros, but this rhinoceros does not have this protrusion in the rhinoceros females. Male rhinoceros insufficiently fed in the adult period are not ready to mate. they have to find a food area before the time of mating. These areas should be located around and around the slits where the higher value trees are exposed to the resin. There is a serious controversy among male rhinoceros beetles during this period due to the limited availability of nutrient areas found during the mating season. This resin, which is found in the core of the tree, attracts many male rhinoceros.

Due to the limited area of ​​food, rhinoceros have to fight other male rhinoceros for these areas. As a result of the examinations and observations made, male rhinoceros beetles with the longest and largest horn were seen to have won these battles. For this reason, a male horned rhinoceros is not only strong but also more fortunate to find food. Researchers have discovered that these horns of rhinoceros men grow up more because of the nutrients in the physical environment. They have also discovered that some rhinitic beetles genetically have larger horns and larger environmental nutrient contributions, that is, environmental nutrients with a genetic basis are important in the growth of rhinoceros beetles.
