The biggest beetle I've ever seen!

The biggest beetle I've ever seen!
There are bigger beetles out there, but this is the biggest I've ever seen. Approximately 6 - 6.5 cm (2.5 inches). I was pretty excited to find this guy! This is a wood boring beetle of the family Buprestidae: the Ceiba Borer Beetle (Euchroma gigantea ).


Photographed at Tirimbina Biological Reserve, Costa Rica
