When asked what could be said about the nature of the Creator, the British biologist J. B. S. Haldane is said to have answered, “An inordinate fondness for beetles.” This is because almost 25% of all known species are beetles!
當被問到造物者有什麼天性時，據說英國生物學家 J. B. S. Haldane 回答「對甲蟲情有獨鍾」。這是因為所有已知的物種當中，25%是甲蟲。
Of the approximately 400,000 known species of beetles, it would appear the Creator feels most passionately about a rhinoceros beetle from Central and South America. It is so big and so powerful that the Swedish zoologist Carl Linnaeus decided to name it after the Greek demigod Hercules in 1758.
在四十多萬種已知的甲蟲當中，造物者似乎獨厚一種來自於中南美 洲的兜蟲。牠大到、強壯到瑞典動物學家 Carl Linnaeus在 1758 年的時候決定以希臘神人赫克力士命名。
Around the globe, tens of thousands of people share the same passion with God. Taiwan and Japan have an active pet-beetle industry. After more than a decade of intensive breeding, enthusiasts in both countries have pushed the length limit of captive-bred Dynastes hercules to the vicinity of 165 mm. It is hoped future endeavors will shatter the 170 mm barrier.
在世界各地，數萬人和上帝有相同的嗜好。台灣和日本擁有活躍的寵物甲蟲產業。經過了超過十年緊鑼密鼓地繁殖，兩國的玩家已經把長戟大兜蟲的體長堆到165 mm的境界。希望未來的努力能夠粉碎 170 mm 的屏障。
This website is dedicated to the knowledge of Dynastes hercules in all aspects.
