This is one of the two fighting Atlas Beetles at the Bishop Museum Backyard Monsters: The World of Insects exhibit. These beetles can grow up to 130mm in size though of course nowhere as big at the animatroic model. It is know for its size and for the horns seen on its head. You can learn more about the Atlas Beetle and see a display of dozens of actual size beetles at this exhibit. Tomorrow the Tomato Caterpillar.
