As grubs they are impressively large. As beetle expert Brett Ratcliffe puts it, they “are basically the size of a Polish sausage.” Hercules beetles also go through metamorphosis, like a butterfly. Except, a butterfly spins a cocoon out of silk. The beetle builds a pupal chamber out of its own feces and, in it, transforms. As an adult, male Hercules beetles can stretch up to seven inches long including their horns.
