Stag Beetle

By deskridge
While I was not as enthusiastic about bugs as some boys are growing up, I did still find them interesting. My favorite insect was always the stag beetle. It's one of the largest of insects, and I always thought that those mandibles looked really vicious. Though, I learned later that they really don't use them for much other than wrestling with one another. Still it is a cool looking creepy crawly.

Tools used: Sculptris, Poser, Vue, GIMP

Thanks for looking!

I'm the same about bugs, just kinda so-so. But as far as beetles go I always liked the rhinoceros beetle, for the same reason you like the stag beetle!
