I was just doing a little late night surfing and found this in the “Odd News section”. Seems like fighting beetles is a big thing.
After you see the video can you imagine the size of those beetles? According to Wikipedia, the Rhinoceros Beetle are among the largest beetles in the world. I don’t think I want to see something that big crawling around in my house.
I’m not sure I like the idea of beetle fights, but then again we still have one or two frog jumping contests in the US. Probably much the same.

Apparently these are common for Asian kids to have just as pets, let alone fight them. Also, the Wikipedia page didn’t show their size, but another page there on a particular species of Rhino Beetle- the Hercules Beetle can be over 4.5 inches long. One says up to 178mm which is about 7 inches- yikes!
