Date: Sunday, July 21st
Time: 11:00am – 1:00pm
Location: Conference Room – 766 Valencia Street
With giant jaws that resemble the antlers of a male elk or deer, these beetles are taking “going stag” literally. Spending most of their life as larva, the stag beetle only comes to the surface to mate. Maybe they’re just very shy or they have too much going on for a committed relationship? Whatever the case may be, when they do face the light of day they do it with a impressive display of menacing jaws. After all, nothing says “I’m looking for love” like a pair of antler like appendages, half the size of your body, sticking out from your face. Join us as well deep dive into the subterranean life of one of nature’s latest bloomers and possibly unravel it’s gravitation to the bachelor lifestyle.
