Hi. I saw the last 2 postings for Stag Beeltes ,and sadly they were not alive. Just wanted to let you know that my teen son rescued this one from a pool skimmer. We let him dry out & rest and he is as good as new. What a neat insect. we have never seen one before, but are big nature & insect fans.

Giant Stag Beetle

Hi KeriAnn,
Thanks for sending your very sweet photo of a living Giant Stag Beetle as well as your thrilling rescue story.  It just might have sent our editorial staff over the edge had we received another corpse photo.

We are glad to share. We all have a love for all bugs. My 7 year old, in the photo has a special love for all things creepy & crawly. Have a good day/

    That is definitely a very cute picture. It’s nice to finally see a Giant Stag Beetle alive, and being held by someone. Hopefully, this will help people realize that they have no need to fear this bug!
