Heaviest Insect

Of the heavy weights in the insect world, a rhinoceros beetle wins the title.   Megasoma actaeon is found in Guyana, South America and adults weigh in at an astonishing 3.5 ounces (100 grams)!

Your average grasshopper weighs 0.01 ounces (300 mg), so it would take more than 300 grasshoppers to weigh as much as one Megasoma!
