The Giant Stag is found on trees.
The Giant Stag can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Giant stags are huge stag beetles with one tooth in each side of their large jaws. They're very territorial but careful at the same time, so they usually hide in holes in trees. They have a long life span. Records show that some have lived up to five years. They're very popular among collectors as pets, so they commonly fetch a high price."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"Whoa! I caught a giant stag! Small world, isn't it?"
