More than 1,000 species of the beetle family Lucanidae, called the stag beetle or staghorn beetle, are found worldwide. Their enormous toothed jaws that resemble the antlers of a stag identify the striking stag beetles. The largest species in North America is the giant stag beetle (Lucanus elephus) that grows up to 2-½ inches long.
