Categories Uncategorized Stag Beetle Post author By Rebecca Post date Thursday, July 8, 2010 2 Comments on Stag Beetle This huge beetle appeared to be dying when we found it on our outdoor stage Monday afternoon. It’s a male Reddish-brown Stag Beetle, Lucanus capreolus. Apparently, despite their ferocious appearance, they actually just eat tree sap!
