Your letter to the bugman: In my garden, it just snowed. But the next morning, I found this little poor stag beetle( possibly dorcus hopei?) . But instead of going to hibernation, it wasn’t moving. I took him in, warmed him up and he begun to move. I have him as pet. But why was it white?(Not snow for sure)

Dear Stag beetle lover,
This is NOT an albino Stag Beetle. It appears to be a normally colored Stag Beetle with some type of mineral encrustation. Do you use salt to remove snow?
