Army of goliathus
Army of 9 Goliathus Orientalis on black oak base, under square glass cover.
Described for the first time in 1801 by Jean-Baptiste Lamarck (a french naturalist), Goliathus is an African species which can reach up to ten centimeters long and weigh up to 100g, what makes the show of their first flight at the begining of the raining season when they crowl out of the ground, very impressive. The Y-shaped black horn of the males is used as a lever, fighting during reproductive period or just defending a sweet fruit. A perfect lining in black and white.
Our ones are farmed in Rep. Democratic of Congo.
