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.
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.
