An Impressive Weight Lifter: The Rhinoceros Beetle
When you think of powerful creatures, a beetle might not be the first thing that pops into your head but the Rhinoceros Beetle is an incredibly strong insect. There are over 300 different types of rhinoceros beetle, with the Hercules Beetle at the top of the pile when it comes to strength. Measuring around 6 inches in length, some hercules beetles have been known to lift up to 850 times their own body weight; that’s the equivalent of a human lifting a 65 ton object!
