10 Animals That Look Scary, But Are Actually Harmless

Any bug or beetle is actually feared, but the one with horns is obviously more feared. This is a subfamily of large beetles that have horns, which give them the scary factor. Some of the species very commonly seen are the Atlas beetle, Hercules beetle, or the common rhinoceros beetle. The horns are there to fight with others of the same species (and, not humans!). The fact that they cannot bite or sting makes them totally harmless. Some Asians even keep these as pets.
