Late last night, a male Reddish-Brown Stag Beetle (Lucanus capreolus) visited me on our back porch, doubtless attracted to the light. This stunning beetle, easily two inches in length, sports quite impressive pincers. Nonetheless, the beetle is a vegetarian, feeding on tree sap. The pincers are for challenging rival males. Interestingly enough, the female of the species also sports a set of pincers, though smaller than the male’s.
