Donating to the museum[edit]

Upon donation to the Museum, Blathers the curator will say the following.

In Wild World[edit]

"Horned beetles are said to be the largest of the beetle families, wot? Indeed, in some regions, this is the largest beetle on record. It certainly has the largest repulsiveness quota. Hardly something to brag about..."

In City Folk[edit]

"Goliath beetles are a variety of fruit beetle with a very long scientific name. As stands to reason, given their name, these beetles are incredibly strong. Beyond that morsel of knowledge, I know little, because they utterly REPULSE me..."

It can be found in the middle terrace on the lonely palm tree to the right of the exhibit.

In New Leaf[edit]

"Goliath beetles, named after the legendary giant, are among the largest insects in the world. The larvae can weight four ounces or more. Once matured, they are only half that weight, however. They spend their days flying from tree to tree to feed on tree sap or fruits."

It can be found in the left most wall, in the far left room, on the palm tree closest to the top left corner.

In New Horizons[edit]

"Hoo! Ewww! The goliath beetle is a colossal creature that can grow up to four-inches long. Yes, they love to sup on sap and pollen, and frolic among the flowers. But did you know, the goliath beetle has a horn upon its head that it uses to fight its foes? And picture this... Each one of this behemoth's legs ends in pinchers! Deep...calming...breaths..."

It can be found in the main bug room on a big tree on the top right corner.

Commissioning a model[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if the player brings three Goliath Beetles to Flick to commission a model, he will say the following:

"R-really? You want a sculpture of a goliath beetle? Fell juggernaut of the backyard? It is the exquisite intersection of mighty strength and graceful grace! Plus those cool white markings! I promise this will be my gigantic-est masterpiece, and I shall title it The Grand Goliath Beetle!"

Real-world information[edit]

The Goliathus giganteus (the Goliath Beetle) and the other five members of the genus are all natives to Africa, primarily around the equatorial tropics. Unlike other scarab beetles in the sub. family of Cetoniinae (flower scarab beetles), it requires a high protein diet as a larva - in captivity the larvae can eat cat and/or dog food alongside dried leaves. Like its relatives, adults prefer to feed on sugar-rich fluids like tree sap and the juice from fruits. As in other horned scarabaeoid beetles, only the males possess the tiny horns; females have shorter, rectangular heads.
