Exhibit

I take it this was an exhibit at a zoo or similar?

Hercules beetle!

It actually turned up in my friends, cousins, window box, in the middle of London......?!?
He found it last summer, but kept it in the freezer for me until now?
Thanks for the id!

What a find!

It may have come in on a ship, of course. Simply stunning.
