Description: Unique set of fighting beetles from Indonesia. Stag beetles use their mandibles to wrestle each other for favored mating sites in a manner that parallels the way stags fight over females. Fights may also be over food, such as tree sap and decaying fruits. Despite their often fearsome appearance they are not normally aggressive to humans.
