Anonymous: IS THAT BUG ON THE WATERMELON FUCKIN REAL

iguanamouth:

aha hell yeah it is ! im fairly certain its the japanese rhinocerous beetle, otherwise known as the insect that heracross was based off of

image

they start off and in fact live most of their lives underground as this little frog eye lookin pupae for about a year, and then emerge as very formidable looking bugs for four months

image

in the wild the males use their large horns to fight over territories and access to sugary saps and food supplies - two of them will square off, and the strongest will eventually flip the opponent into the air or onto their back

in fact this behaviour has led to a pretty interesting gambling game in areas of japan, where bets are placed on two beetles that are then pitted against each other. sounds like something id love to see. beetle wrestling, sign me the heck up

image

in japanese their names are kabutomushi, or helmet bug, thus named because their horns resemble little samurai helmets, and they can get up to two inches in length, not including their battle spike

although they look big, theyre not even close the the largest species of rhinocerous beetle, the HERCULES BEETLE, which can get up to SIX inches in length and lives mostly in the rainforests of central and south america

theyre all great and very much real
