Another fascinating part of field herping, along with all the other natural wonders we encounter, is the invertebrates! This forum is dedicated to both field and captive invertebrates.

Ouch! Beetle w/ Pinchers

Post by Noah M » October 6th, 2015, 4:50 pm

Saw this guy crossing a road in Marion County, Florida. I didn't want to mess with it because it looks like it could have seriously hurt. It was ~1" long.

Anybody know what it is? Stag beetle?
