Talk of giants and this one is another one. LennyWorthington, Thialand, had posted similar looking one in PN on Nov 26, 2013; Mango Stem Borer (Long Horned Beetle), Batocera rufomaculata. But length mentioned is 45 mm, and this one is almost double of that. The 6th photo against the scale seems its length as 70 mm, but the bug is sitting its fore-body raised. Direct head to tip of tail is 80 mm.
