This framed stag beetle is a study in contrast, with its beautiful metallic coloring and vicious looking jaws. The males of this species have long mandibles which resemble a stag’s antlers and are used in the same way in battling other males for mating rights or food sources, which typically consist of mostly dead and rotting wood. If you are into mandibles, another framed beetle we sell, the Pincher Beetle has the biggest in the animal kingdom (per body ratio).
