"I caught a horned atlas! It's like a weight has been lifted!" —New Leaf

The horned atlas (コーカサスオオカブト, Kōkasasu-ōkabuto?) is a bug found in Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf. It sells for 8,000 bells. Before New Leaf, it was known as the atlas beetle. It appears during summer evenings, between the months of June and August, roughly between the times 5pm and 8am. It is rumored that this bug appears more frequently when it's raining.

Donating to the museum

As with all bugs in the Animal Crossing series, the atlas beetle can be donated to the Museum by talking to Blathers, who will provide some information about it.

In Wild World

When donated to the museum, Blathers will say:

"I find most things about beetles like this repellant, but the MOST repellant are the thin wings that they keep hidden inside. You know of what I speak? After landing, seeing that little piece of wing sticking out of their backs! Blech! Just another example of how insects scoff at proper manners and tidiness!"

Once donated, the atlas beetle can be found on the bottom of the right palm tree in the first room of the bug exhibit.

In City Folk

When donated to the museum, Blathers will say:

"Crowned with three horns, the atlas beetle is known as the strongest of the dynastid beetles. Blech, I wonder if it had three horns when it was in its larval form... I simply loathe larvae. All squishy and squirmy... Nightmarish, really."

In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the bug exhibit will list information about this bug.

"Horned atlases, though perhaps not the largest, are still known as the strongest of dynastid beetles. Their 3 horns make them look like a mash-up of a dynastid beetle and a stag beetle! In the pupal stage, they already have 3 horns and tend to be pretty strong."

After donation, the atlas beetle can be found on the middle terrace, on the first palm tree overlooking the scorpion, tarantula, and rafflesia flower.

Further Information

220px-Chalcosoma atlas

The atlas beetle is found in southern Asia, specifically Malaysia. It is mostly distinguished by its large horns, which make up roughly one third of its 12 to 13 centimeter length. It uses its horns to fight other male atlas beetles for a mate - the female atlas beetle is smaller and lacks horns.

The larva is pale yellow with black markings and a pale blue underbelly in appearance, and is known to bite when touched, and is also known to fight to the death with other atlas beetle larvae. It can carry 4 kilograms, which is the equivalent of a human being carrying two elephants - this gives it the reputation of being one of the strongest animals on earth for its size.
