The Horned Elephant is found on palm trees.
The Horned Elephant can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Horned elephants are some of the heaviest dynastid beetles in the world. The thin yellow hair that covers their bodies makes them rather attractive to mates and collectors. Their horns resemble an elephant raising its trunk, which is how they got their name. They're already big in their larval stage, but by their pupal stage, they are the size of a person's hand."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"I caught a horned elephant! Did it get lost from the herd?"
