This elephant beetle drawing is based upon a specimen that was over six inches long. These large beetles are primarily found in South America but you can add him to your own creative projects without ever leaving home.
The History of Insects was published in 1813 without identifying an illustrator. Which is truly a shame because the work is full of wonderful insect drawings like this one.
