|Try putting the stag beetle in some low undergrowth where it can pull itself up if it turns turtle. Any place where there are some twigs/leaves etc. within easy reach.|
Males have very large mandibles, hence the name 'stag' beetle - females have much smaller jaws.
Some say they can bite - I have never been so much as nipped and I pick them up all the time!
Their numbers are very much on the decline, mainly due to lack of suitable habitat (rotting wood left in the ground undisturbed) so every single one is worth saving!
