I went out to check on my tomatoes and water them and notice this big buggie in the container. I was wondering what kind of beetle is it and is it a threat to the tomatoes? I an thinking no due to its size, but was still curious about it.

Upon doing some research I found out that this was a rare and pleasant visitor. This is a unicorn beetle. These are rarely seen, and I am wondering what it was doing in my container.
