Some species of Goliath beetles have long been considered rare. Goliath beetles have been bred only recently, in fact, and only in the past few years has the whole rearing cycle been successfully completed.

Along with Megasoma elephas, Goliath beetles hold the record as the world’s largest insects: up to 11 cm long and 100 g!
Scarab beetles account for a large proportion of the world’s insects.
