Going Stag...Beetle

I thought these monstrous insects only existed in Japan, where kids keep them as pets. (I swear -- the shopping centers were always selling the bug cages and these guys and the horned kind were always on the wrapping of the cage.)  This fella was found in my neighbor's back yard.  Terrifying!  I don't want to get attacked by those pincers.


  1. Snap out of it. When I was a kid these kinds of bugs were such a joy to find. I'd play with them. Probably tortured them unknowingly. Even like spiders once. Never warmed up to snakes, though.

  2. Eeeek! I can't say I blame you! Great picture though:)
