Description: Rare hard to get giant Passalid beetles commonly known as Bess beetles. Not only are these beetles impressively large but are also unique in that they are sub social and practice brood caring. They have the odd ability to produce 14 acoustical sounds by rubbing their abdomen against their hind wings. This is highly unusual for beetles.
