Feather Horned Beetle
Feelers like window wipers

Scientific name: Rhipicera femoralis
Habitat: Australia

Fancy that! Check out those feelers! Is this beetle going to do some cleaning? (We’ve got some windows to clean here at HQ!). Not much is known about this beetle, or the role of its feelers. But we do know that they grow to between 0.39 and 0.98 inch (10 mm and 25 mm) long.
