unknown scarab beetle pix
This one looks similiar to my find(see my photo). My brother says that it's a Hercules beetle but it doesn't have the pointy snout. Your picture was the closest one I could find that looked like mine. Thanks.

These beetles come in a variety of colors and patterns, which always makes it harder identifying. Your beetle might be the Hercules Beetle because the large size. This scarab is too small (about 3/8") to be what you photographed.
