The Giraffe stag (ギラファノコギリクワガタ, Girafanogirikuwagata) is a bug that first appeared in New Horizons.
Because of its rarity, high selling price, and difficulty to catch (as it is the most timid of all the beetles, which are already notoriously timid and easy to scare off), it is often seen by the community as one of the most difficult bug to capture. Extremely careful creeping techniques are required to successfully catch a giraffe stag.

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."

The giraffe stag beetle is one of the largest of the stag beetles. Males are highly territorial and will fight over their territories. Like all stag beetles they eat rotten wood. This species is found throughout southern Asia; from India to the islands of Indonesia, you can sort the subspecies by observing the mandibles. Prosopocoilus Giraffa Keisukei is the largest subspecies, Prosopocoilus Giraffa Daisukei has the brightest elytra , Prosopocilus Giraffa Giraffa is the smallest subspecies and is endemic to the whole southeast Asia.
