#5 The Titan Beetle
The Titan beetle (Titanus giganteus) is the largest beetle in the world

An adult Titan Beetle can grow up to 6.5 inches long, only the Hercules beetle Dynastes hercules, in which giant males occasionally can grow to 7 inches is longer than the Titan, but the Hercules beetle males have an enormous horn making up around half of its total length.

Therefore, the body of the Titan beetle is considerably larger than that of the Hercules beetles.

They can be found in some of the tropical jungles, including French Guiana and Brazil, and are often found recycling decaying wood below the earth's surface.
