Giant Stag Beetle

pet stag beetle
I am a woodworking teacher at a middle school. This stag beetle has been on my garage wall for almost a week. As far as I can tell, he has moved only about 3 feet in either direction. What do you make of this?? I’ve gotten kind of used to him and I hope he is ok just hanging out on the brick wall.

Hi Juanita,
It is so nice to know that woodworking is alive and well in middle school education in North Carolina. We really don’t have a theory on why this Giant Stag Beetle with “trophey antlers” has such limited mobility. He sure is a gorgeous specimen.
