Caption: Stag beetle. The male stag beetle (Lucanus cervus) has large antler-like jaws (mandibles, centre right). These jaws change size and shape during the beetle's life, and are used in contests between rival males. It lives in damp forests where rotting wood can be found. Photographed in Britain.
