The long-horned beetle has a face only a coleopterist could love. But the coolest thing about this South American beetle isn’t its horny face. Its body is strikingly beautiful, looking more like a remarkable piece of tribal art or wood carving than a living thing. Unfortunately the long-horned beetle may well be more threatened than threatening: It’s deemed “vulnerable” by the IUCN.
