"Yippee! I caught a miyama stag! Glad I overcame my stag fright!" —New Leaf

The miyama stag (ミヤマクワガタ, Miyama kuwagata?) is a bug found only in City Folk and New Leaf. It is a beetle that appears between the months of July and August, and sells for a reasonable 1,000 Bells.

In the Japanese versions of the GCN games the Mountain Beetle is also called miyamakuwagata, and may in fact refer to the same beetle in real life.

Donating to the museum

In City Folk

Blathers will say this upon donation to the Museum:

"With its thick, bumpy, armorlike exoskeleton, the Miyama stag beetle is quite popular with children. However, the truth is, this beetle is fragile enough to perish from injuries we'd usually consider minor. Indeed, it appears this beetle suffers from a case of rather too much bark and too little bite."

It can be found on the back terrace of the bug exhibit, on the third tree from the right.

In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the bug exhibit will list information about this bug.

"Miyama stags look strong, with their thick, bumpy exoskeletons and yellow hair covering their bodies. They're active during the day but really don't prefer the heat during the summer. Contrary to their appearance, they are rather delicate insects, so be sure to handle with care."

Further information

The Miyama stag is popular among children in Japan to play with, because the males are largely harmless (the antlers are so large that it cannot bite unless you put your fingers directly in its jaws), and it does not mind being touched. As stated in the "Bugs and Fish" window in City Folk (also known as Encyclopedia), it has a distinctive shape of head, and although it looks strong, it is in fact quite delicate, which maybe why it is popular with children. It is found in mountainous areas in northern Japan, as well as natural forests.
