Can you identify this one?
CLOSED: What's this?!
love it. Its in the long-horned beetle group.
Should be easy for those who really know.
Whats your continent, if not state/region?
It looks like Batocera rufomaculata - see http://www.zin.ru/animalia/coleoptera/eng/batrufiz.htm for an image. Known as the tropical fig borer, it is reported to occur from the west coast of Africa to India and also discovered in Syria. Considered a very common species.
Great pics. Congratulations, you've added a new bug to Dave's Garden bug Guides
Added images to your database. Does anybody know how the clacking sound is made?
I don't know these, but click beetles have a spur underneath their belly that snaps into a space in the other body part when they bend- I think. Probably involves moving body parts, not a 'vocal' thing.
