DESCRIPTION Not only is the Goliath beetle one of the largest of all scarab beetles, it is one of the the largest insects in the world! There are a few insects that may be longer, but the Goliath is probably larger and heavier. Here we have framed the female Goliath beetle which is different to the male in that it does not have the front Y-shaped protuberance. Set in white matt to highlight this big beetle.
