DESCRIPTION  AKA Giraffe Stag-Beetle is the world's longest saw-tooth lucanid displaying long sharp jaws. Colour is matt black. With over 1,000 species in the family Lucanidae a single species can come in several different forms some with large mandibles some with different colourations within the same species which is usually determined by habitat. They usually can fly and typically have four wings. Two of the wings are hardened (elytra) and serve as a body cover to protect the flying wings and abdomen. 

Great specimen.
