Goliath Beetles are the world’s heaviest beetles weighing up to 115 grams, or just over 4 ounces! They are just over half the size of an adult’s hand and are white and black in colour. They have a tiny little stubby horn on their head and as well as being heavy, are one of the world’s largest beetles.
The world’s largest beetle is the Hercules Beetle at 19cm long, including its horns!
Goliath Beetles are found in Africa. They spend most of their time in rotting wood as larvae.
