Caption: Stag beetle (Cyclommatus metallifer) specimen. The male stag beetle has large antler-like jaws (mandibles, centre top). These jaws change size and shape during the beetle's life, and are used in contests between rival males. The stag beetle lives in damp forests where it can easily feed on rotting wood. This specimen is from Indonesia.
