There was a Stag Beetle at my studio last night, I didn’t know what it was at first, but after taking photos of it with my iPhone and sharing it through social media, people identified it as a Stag Beetle, and sure enough they were right.
This particular beetle appears to be a common male Stag Beetle, also called a “Pinching Bug,” which is one of the largest beetles found in Kentucky. This not so little guy was every bit of 60mm in length. Glad he was able to swing by the studio last night and check out some work. Hope to see him again soon.
