Stag Beetle (Lucanus cervus)

The larvae grub of a Stag Beetle is slow growing and can live up to seven years feeding on rotting wood from a wide range of trees especially Oak.

In the wild stag beetles will drink from fallen fruit, for example, apples, plums and cherries. One of their old English names is cherry-eaters, they will also feed on sap-runs on trees and in captivity will drink from a mixture of honey and water.
