Dinosaur In The Garden?

At first glance this may look like a Triceratops, but it’s a Male European Rhinoceros Beetle. It’s easily identified as a male, the female doesn’t have the “horn”.

I spotted both a Male and Female in the garden tonight and the Male was silhouetted by a garden light. So I quickly grabbed the camera from the house and took this silhouette photo.

I’ve not seen any during the daytime but Wikipedia has a great page for reference – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_rhinoceros_beetle
