Illustration for article titled New neighbor.

This is a female Dynastes tityus, or eastern Hercules beetle, and she lives under my door. She’s about 2.5" long. I wish it was a male, though, because those guys have horns like the regular Hercules beetle. But still, she's super cool! All they eat is rotting fruit, and my human neighbor regularly leaves his trash in front of his door for days at a time, so that's probably why she lives where she does.
