Caption: Male and female stag beetles (Lucanus cervus) showing the differences in size and structure. The male (left) has large mandibles (jaws) that are used to fight with other males. Although they seem threatening they are too weak to be harmful, however females can inflict a painful bite. This species is native to Europe.
