It's been so long since I saw a stag beetle that I checked on Wikpedia and this doesn't look like one at all.

The Mother! Like the guy in 'Mimic' almost.

Also, are you a chef? or possibly ex-SAS? I'm a chef and freelance Illustrator, (knives,hotpans,scapels,papercuts) and my hands have just about fewer scars!?

Its a Rhino beetle i think, i have seen them before. Completely harmless. I was sat on the veranda with my girlfriend once when i heard this almighty whack and it was one that had flown straight into the wall behind us!!

We have loads of stag beetles in the garden, it's not one of those.
