If you donate this bug to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"The hercules beetle is known as the largest beetle in the world, eh wot? It's those mammoth horns! Yes, the horns are its clame to fame... But inspect them and you'll see they're covered in hair. Blech! Hair horns... Frankly, I can't think of anything more vile..."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Hoo now... The largest dynastid beetle around! I must say, those horns are simply magnificent! Dynastid beetles move fairly slowly, so you're free to view them at your own pace, eh wot? I must heartily endorse any insect that has the decency to move slowly and predictably. Well done!"

[edit] Real Life

In real life, the Hercules Beetle is one of the largest beetles in the world, with it's key feature being it's massive horn which makes up most of it's body. Giving Ants a run for their money, they can carry up to 850 times their own body weight, labeling them the strongest creatures on Earth! These super-strong bugs make South and Central America their native home.
