ATLAS BEETLE - CHALCOSOMA ATLAS
The Atlas beetle, Chalcosoma atlas, is a species of beetle belonging to the Scarabaeidae family. It’s found across much of southern Asia, especially in Malaysia and Indonesia. Like other beetles in the genus Chalcosoma, C. atlas is remarkable in size. While females reach between 1 and 2.4 inches in length as the smaller sex (common sexual dimorphism within Scarabaeidae and other beetle families), males reach between 2.4 and a whopping 5.1 inches. The males have specialized horns on the head and thorax with which they battle each other for mates and territory.
Our all-natural, intact specimens (no fake parts here!) are all of first-rate quality, delicately prepared, mounted, and framed with double-glass glazing in our very own fabrication studio in Upstate New York. We model our frames from solid fine ashwood, and they’re available in both a matte-black, and a natural finish.
Our framed insects are made-to-order. Please allow up to two weeks for your order to be completed. If you need your order sooner than this, please contact us at 212-343-1114 x401 or email@example.com and we will do our best to accommodate you!
