Fighting Stag Beetle in Frame (Hexarthrius parryi paradoxus)


Hexarthrius parryi, the Fighting Giant Stag Beetle, is a species of large stag beetles. Males have long jaws directed downward from the base, with bifurcated tips and a large yellow or bright orange patch occupying the posterior three-quarters of each elytron.

Eggs are laid into rotten wood, sometimes into tunnels made by the females. Larvae feed on rotten wood. They become a pupa in the about 6-9 months. Adults emerge in about one month after pupation. Life of adults last about 6-8 months and feed on sap and fruits

Hexarthrius parryi can reach a length of about 40–90 millimetres (1.6–3.5 in) in males, of about 40–54 millimetres (1.6–2.1 in) in females (length from the tip of the jaw to wing tip).
