A Rhinoceros Beetle. This one is not armed with horns because it is a female. Length at least 35mm.
Usually found on the grounds on this hill in Pinausok, Kundasang, Sabah, Malaysia.
Wikipedia says that Rhinoceros beetles are completely harmless to humans because they cannot bite or sting. "Cannot bite or sting" - True, "Completely harmless to humans" - False. I carried it and place it on top of my palm, that is when the annoyed beetle attacked me, it used it's sharp hooks at the tip of it's legs to grab my skin and "embrace" it hardly several times while producing an angry buzzing sound. Those sharp tips pierced into my skin and gave me great pain, however I had to stand the pain and try to release it's legs first before pulling it out. This is the first time I was attacked painfully by a beetle, all the previous rhino beetles that I handled never gave me any wounds. >>>Map accuracy : 50m diameter.
