Information about the Japanese Rhinoceros Beetle:
The Japanese Rhinoceros or Horned Beetle is native to several countries of Asia, including China, Korea Taiwan and of course Japan. They are found in forests, where they feed upon rotten fruits, decaying wood, nectar, sap and other vegetable matter. They are quite popular in the pet industry and are often kept in homes. Unfortunately, they are also often used for gambling exploiting the beetle's natural instincts to fight one another. In some communities this is a chronic problem causing many to lose a good deal of money. The beetles are relatively short-lived, with the males dying after mating a few times and the females dying shortly after they lay eggs. They are not endangered, but like many animal in Asia the natural environments they rely upon are quickly disappearing.
