Hi Bugman!
I found this beetle near Coca-Cola enterprise’s headquarters in Atlanta, and I have never seen such a bug! It has huge pincers, that come out from either side of its head, running parallel to the ground.
Signature: Thanks!!

Giant Stag Beetle

This is now the third photo of a dead Giant Stag Beetle we have received this year and we only received one submission of a living individual.  We hate those odds.  Your letter did not indicate if this beetle was alive when you found it.  It is a magnificent creature and we can only hope it died of old age.
