Hercules Beetle

I've read that the rhino beetle (nickname Hercules beetle) can lift 850x their weight. At 3 ounces, that would equate to 159lbs, which seems inconceivable. I can't imagine a beetle lifting a large dog. Can someone verify?

@Cbarrow7,
The paper written in Berkeley, California stated this scarab could lift 30 times it's weight not 850.

@Cbarrow7,
If you want to know if it is possible for the beetle, dog situation..

You should get yourself as mentioned beetle then place a dog on top of the beetle to see if the beetle will lift the dog off of itself. the beetle.
