Caption: Titan beetle (Titanus giganteus). This longhorn beetle (family Cerambycidae) is one of the largest insect species in the world. Adult insects can grow to about 20 centimetres in length (excluding antennae). They defend themselves against predators by using their sharp spines and strong jaws. The titan beetle typically lives in the rain forests of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, the Guianas, and north-central Brazil. Photographed in Petit-Saut, French Guiana.
