The Atlas Beetle is a type of Rhinocerous Beetle, one of the largest in the world.
Most people are familiar with our butterflies, but we also have some *amazing* live insects in our collection. Some are on display in the Hall of Entomology, and some go out to schools through our Bugs on Wheels program. Our entomologist, Erin M, raises these amazing arthropods, and she let us invade their abode with a couple of cameras recently. We came away with these photos, and hopefully a pretty cool video series (coming soon!)
