World's Biggest Beetle

This mysterious creature is known as the Titan beetle, one of the strongest beetle that can grow up to seven inches long. It can easy snap a wooden pencil in two with its jaws.

The insect hides away in South America’s humid tropical rainforests and only ventures out to find a mate. Judging by large boreholes found in dead trees, scientists believe the grubs feed on decaying wood underground for several years before they are fully grown,
