The Atlas beetle, Chalcosoma atlas, is a species of beetle belonging to the Scarabaeidae family.

Chalcosoma atlas, like other beetles of the genus Chalcosoma, is remarkable for its size, that can reach a length of about 25–60 millimetres (0.98–2.36 in) in the females. As common in some Scarabaeidae, the males are larger than the females, reaching a length of about 60–130 millimetres (2.4–5.1 in). The males have specialised horns on the head and thorax that they use to fight with each other to gain mating rights with females.
