The Golden Stag is one of the rarest and most expensive beetles found in this game, next to the Hercules Beetle. This bug was first introduced in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf

, being absent from the previous two installments of this series.


[edit] How to Catch

The Golden Stag Beetle is an extremely rare bug found on palm tree trunks. Simply walk up, without getting too close, and swing your net. It is much easier to do with a golden net because of its reach. Make sure you maintain a below average walking speed when approaching a bug of this type and rarity.

[edit] Player

This is what your player says when you catch a Golden Stag:

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

WHOA! I caught a golden stag! The light, the blinding light!

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

WHOA! I caught a golden stag! Better not spend it all in one place!

[edit] Museum

If you donate this bug to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Though less dramatically shaped than most stag beetles, this bug's gold, shiny color makes up for it! Another notable point about the species is the friendly way males and females interact. The most successful families are the ones that get along best, eh wot? Well done... vile bugs.

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Golden stags are named after their unique gold color and are highly prized by collectors. They shine like gold when their bodies are dry, but when it's humid, they actually look black. Golden stags have short mandibles that aren't good for fighting, but males sometimes fight for territory. The males are surprisingly friendly to the females, which gives these beetles a likeable quality.

[edit] Trivia

  • The Golden Stag is tied with the Hercules Beetle as the top selling bug and top selling beetle.

[edit] Real Life

The Golden Stag is a species of Stag beetle. Although Stag Beetles look initimidating, they are not very agressive towards humans. Stag Beetles like this are sometimes used in Insect Fighting, a gambling sport.
