Found this already stepped on in front of my gym. I brought it home and my girls wanted to know more about it. I have seen large Single Horned ”Rhino” beetles before, but never one with two big horns/pincers like this. It is about 2 in long and 3/4 in wide.
It troubles us immensely to learn about this senseless slaughter. This magnificent beetle is a Giant Stag Beetle, Lucanus elaphus.
