The Flat Stag Beetle is one of a slurry of breeds of beetles presented in Animal Crossing, and Animal Crossing: Wild World, while it was left out of Animal Crossing: City Folk.


[edit] How to Catch

The Flat Stag Beetle can only be caught once it’s found holding onto trees, as is the norm for all breeds of beetles(give or take a couple exceptions). As it is one of the higher-selling beetles which breaks the 1,000-Bell price mark, your character can lose it much easier if you’re not fully involved in your task.

[edit] Player

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

[edit] Animal Crossing

"Yes! I caught a flat stag beetle! I have to celebrate! I know! I'll throw a flat-stag party!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I did it! I caught a stag beetle! I bet he's fun at parties!"

[edit] Menu

When looking at the Stag Beetle in the bug menu it will say this:

During the day, they hide out in trees. Their personality and pinchers are both strong.

[edit] Museum

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

When picking up a stag beetle, I would advise you to grab it on it's back side. If your finger got stuck in the brute's pinchers, you'd surely regret it, wot wot!

[edit] Real Life

There are about 1,200 different breeds of Stag Beetle existent in the world today. To prove their dominance, they fight other males using their strong jaws to gain dominant status, fight for food, or defend their expecting female mate.
