Baby Hercules

The hercules beetle is the largest beetle on the planet, being a type of rhinoceros beetle of the scarab family. You know these huge insects for their horns and iridescent hides. But did you know that they start life as abominable, bloated grubs? Didn't think so.

Thanks for the photo, Sean. His photos will be featured over the next several weeks. His flair for photography and training as a biologist makes for some great photos of our creepy, crawling friends.
