The Brown Rhinoceros Beetle is also called the Fighting Beetle, and Thai Rhinoceros Beetle which is a big time star in Thailand as it is used to fight for money. The male is larger than the female and also armed with two chitinous bifurcated horns, a thick thoracic horn and a smaller cephalic horn, which they used to fight against their rivals during the mating period.

The female absent horns, they are not used to fight for bets; but always also a beautiful Beetle.
