Nature is a weird and wonderful thing that I doubt we’ll ever fully understand and videos like the one below just 100% prove this.

The video shows the time lapse evolution of the life of a Dynastes Heracles Beetle from a tiny egg into a monstrous fuck off beetle. Let me tell you, there are some absolutely messed up stages of its journey that are just completely weird and beyond my comprehension. Not something I want to ever be involved with basically, but see for yourself:
Weird right? Kinda even stranger that the dude wants to put this beetle in its hand during all the gross stages of its metamorphosis too, but I guess he’s some kind of outdoorsy guy like Bear Grylls or something. Still weird though.
In case you want to know anything about the Dynastes Heracles Beetle, then it’s a large beetle native to the rainforests of Central America, South America, Lesser Antilles, and the Andes. The biggest of them can grow to 17.5cm including the horn, and I hope I never meet one. That’s it.
For more of the same, check out this massive insect going mad and trying to bite off this woman’s hand as she tries to feed it. All kinds of nope.
