An information board in the bug exhibit will provide information about this bug.

"Cyclommatus stags are identified by their long pairs of mandibles, which can be as long as their bodies. Their large mandibles are actually already formed when they're in the pupal stage of life. Although these beetles are mostly easygoing, those living in mountains really can't stand the heat."

In real life[]


Cyclommatus elaphus is a weak and fragile beetle, but their mandibles (which grow as long as their body) give them a big advantage. It has a metallic-like body, with its color changing from a goldish silver to red depending on the angle you are looking at it from. They can grow up to 105 mm long.
