The Elephant beetle is one of many beetles that belong the the scarab family. They live mostly in Central and South America, so keep a look out for them while you travel around Costa Rica. This particular Elephant beetle was spotted on one of the plants in our lobby. Once the guests spotted him everyone had to get a picture of this guy to show their friends back home. It is a completely harmless and slow beetle that just likes to hangout while eating its favorite food pineapple.
