The Flat Stag Beetle is a gray nocturnal stag beetle. It is uncommon, though easy to find, and sells for 2,000 bells. It is found on trees along with its cousins, the Saw Stag Beetle, the Mountain Stag Beetle and the Giant Beetle, and is the most common of these four, especially from 6-8am.

Donation in the Museum

As with all bugs in the Animal Crossing series series, the stag beetle can be donated to the Museum by talking to Blathers. During the donation, he will tell the player a little bit about it.

In Animal Crossing

"They're called beetles, wot? The lugs of the insect world. Insects with armor plating their backs, you know. Their armor, it... opens up, revealing wings. Featherless wings. Which they use to fly! It's really quite unnatural. Then, there's that thin, membrane-like covering where their heads connect to their bodies. Most foul!"

In Wild World

Blather's comment is as follows: 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!
