Xylotrupes gideon gideon ♂

Xylotrupes gideon or The Siamese Rhinoceros Beetle or fighting beetle, is a species of Dynastinae beetle that is particularly known for its role in beetle fighting in Thailand. This beetle uses its biforcated horns to try to knock other males off a tree or rock when a female is near. The Siamese Rhino also makes a distinct hissing squeak when disturbed.

  • While we try our best to depict the actual colors & design of our butterflies and other insect artworks on our website, please note that colors, rendering and hand crafting may appear differently from one computer to another. We cannot guarantee that the insect & its artwork design you receive will be identical in color, shade or size as the one you see on our website.
  • Our frames are not air-sealed. This will allow you to repair your butterfly, beetle or other insect should it become necessary. Since our insects specimens have been professionally preserved and dried, we guarantee that your display will last and look wonderful for a very long time. Therefore, air sealing is merely a personal choice and not a necessity.  This also allows for inside frame cleaning from time to time such as interior glass due to organic out gassing over time and is natural.
  • We may substitute a different size frameset in same color depending on variability aspects such as insect size and product availability.
  • Most artworks are shipped within a week of ordering but may require a few days longer to prepare some insects.
