Unknown spotting

Description:

Body length: 32mm.

Habitat:

Sub-urban house surrounded by bamboos and other mixed forests. Cool to warm place. Altitude: 1,700m.

Notes:

When I saw this longhorn beetle drowned in a bucket of water in the morning there was no movement at all. Nevertheless, I took it out, shook gently the water on its body, kept it out on the lukewarm morning sunlight (photo no. 3), it showed some movement after 5 - 7 minutes. After 10 - 12 minutes later it started moving normally. It is a joy rescuing even an insect from its doom!
