    What is it?! It's a beetle's face!! Mecynorhina harrisi is a scarab beetle that can be found in Africa, specifically in Cameroon, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. Males have large, forward-projecting horns, and as you would guess, this is a male! {Photo credit: Ferdy Christant} #JungleDragon #Mecynorhinaharrisi
