Joe found a rhinoceros beetle recently and after much time and effort, snapped this fantastic photo of it meeting Sawyer. I love it so much I have to share it!

Cute!

Hope the kitty didn't think it was a meal D0=

Nope, the cats were more afraid of the beetle than vice versa. Probably because being a rhino beetle, it HISSED at them whenever it started to feel threatened. Cats get the message quick when it's delivered in the form of a hiss. ;)

Corporal Joe of the Mobile Infantry found that the "Bugs" weren't quite as intimidating as they seemed in training.

That said...

That is a fantastic picture.

Although I can't imagine living somewhere where one just happens to “find” a rhinoceros beetle. o.o;

I'm sort of afraid to ask, but what was the aftermath of this meeting? I keep imagining a snap! and a very loud yowl.
