Rhinoceros beetles grow to be just over one inch long. They are normally gray with black or brown markings; the picture to the left is a rare all-brown rhino beetle. Male rhinoceros beetles have a horn on their head. Rhinoceros beetles are the strongest creatures on earth compared to its body weight; they can carry 850 times their own weight; even an elephant can only carry about 25% of its weight on its back
