In New Horizons

When either donating to the museum or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say (with abhorrence):

"The giraffe stag beetle is a bug of preposterous proportions. Not only is its body rather large, it has two long, jagged jaws that can put it over five inches in size! The giraffe stag beetle's long jaws have been compared to the long neck of the giraffe...hence the name. But I say such comparisons are a stretch. Giraffe necks are NOT lined with spikes! If I were a giraffe, I would protest."
