Alright Lois, here is another one! I wanted to post this one but I remembered the situation differently than the photo actually looked… it’s not that much green in it. ANYWAY! This bad boy is called Hirschkäfer (deer beetle) and looks a lot nastier than it actually is. It’s big, true. But those massive antlers are just that: Antlers. They are for show, and of course also for battles with other Hirschkäfer (beetles). So they can’t bite you with them… I like them a lot, but don’t often see them around. What a Beauty!! (in memory of Steve Irwin).
Hirschkäfer! The biggest and baddest of them all
