Dynastes Hyllus
DYNASTES HYLLUS is a large scarab beetle species that ranges from Mexico to Guatemala . Its larvae have been found to associate with the logs of Persea americana . TAXONOMYThere were two subspecies recognized, D. hyllus hyllus and D. hyllus moroni, but subsequent genetic analyses clearly indicate that they are unrelated to one another; D. hyllus hyllus is sister to Dynastes grantii , while D. hyllus moroni is sister to Dynastes maya , so moroni is presently considered a separate species.

Hybrid (biology)
In biology , a HYBRID, or crossbreed , is the result of combining the qualities of two organisms of different breeds, varieties, species or genera through sexual reproduction . Hybrids are not always intermediates between their parents (such as in blending inheritance ), but can show hybrid vigour , often growing larger or taller than either parent. The concept of a hybrid is interpreted differently in animal and plant breeding, where there is interest in the individual parentage. In genetics , attention is focused on the numbers of chromosomes . In taxonomy, a key question is how closely related the parent species are. Species
Species
are reproductively isolated by strong barriers to hybridisation, which include morphological differences, differing times of fertility, mating behaviors and cues, and physiological rejection of sperm cells or the developing embryo. Some act before fertilization and others after it

Egg (biology)
An EGG is the organic vessel containing the zygote in which an animal embryo develops until it can survive on its own; at which point the animal hatches. An egg results from fertilization of an ovum . Most arthropods , vertebrates , and mollusks lay eggs, although some, such as scorpions and most mammals , do not. Reptile
Reptile
eggs, bird eggs , and monotreme eggs are laid out of water, and are surrounded by a protective shell , either flexible or inflexible. Eggs laid on land or in nests are usually kept within a warm and favorable temperature range while the embryo grows. When the embryo is adequately developed it hatches, i.e. breaks out of the egg's shell. Some embryos have a temporary egg tooth they use to crack, pip, or break the eggshell or covering. The largest recorded egg is from a whale shark , and was 30 cm × 14 cm × 9 cm (11.8 in × 5.5 in × 3.5 in) in size

Dynastes Granti
The WESTERN HERCULES BEETLE (DYNASTES GRANTII, often misspelled as "granti") is a species of rhinoceros beetle that lives in Arizona and Utah and in Mexico. It appears in August or September, and grows to a size of 50–80 millimeters (2.0–3.1 in). The imagos usually live 2–4 months, and the larvae may spend 2–3 years before they turn into adults. They are nocturnal and often attracted to lights and they are among the biggest beetles found in the U.S. They are also kept as pets in captivity or used in beetle fighting, most commonly in countries in Asia such as Japan where they are sold in pet shops. Their grayish color turns to near black when wet or moist. They feed on tree sap in the wild by making a small wound in the tree, but this behavior is not harmful to the tree.

Oviposition
OVIPAROUS ANIMALS are animals that lay eggs , with little or no other embryonic development within the mother. This is the reproductive method of most fish , amphibians , reptiles , all birds , and the monotremes . In traditional usage, most insects , molluscs, and arachnids are also described as oviparous; Thierry Lodé (2012), however, describes the mode of reproduction in these organisms as "ovuliparous". MODES OF REPRODUCTION Main article: modes of reproduction The traditional modes of reproduction include oviparity, taken to be the ancestral condition, traditionally where either unfertilised oocytes and fertilised eggs are spawned, and viviparity traditionally including any mechanism where young are born live, or where the development of the young is supported by either parent in or on any part of their body

Insect Mouthparts
Insects exhibit a range of MOUTHPARTS , adapted to particular modes of feeding. The earliest insects had chewing mouthparts. Specialization has mostly been for piercing and sucking, although a range of specializations exist, as these modes of feeding have evolved a number of times (for example, mosquitoes (which are flies ) and aphids (which are true bugs ) both pierce and suck, however female mosquitoes feed on animal blood whereas aphids feed on plant fluids). In this page, the individual mouthparts are introduced for chewing insects. Specializations are generally described thereafter

Mammal
MAMMALS are the vertebrates within the class MAMMALIA (/məˈmeɪliə/ from Latin mamma "breast"), a clade of endothermic amniotes distinguished from reptiles (including birds ) by the possession of a neocortex (a region of the brain), hair , three middle ear bones , and mammary glands . Females of all mammal species nurse their young with milk , secreted from the mammary glands. Mammals include the largest animal on the planet, the blue whale . The basic body type is a terrestrial quadruped , but some mammals are adapted for life at sea , in the air , in trees , underground or on two legs . The largest group of mammals, the placentals , have a placenta , which enables the feeding of the fetus during gestation. Mammals range in size from the 30–40 mm (1.2–1.6 in) bumblebee bat to the 30-meter (98 ft) blue whale . With the exception of the five species of monotreme (egg-laying mammals), all modern mammals give birth to live young
