Rugose Stag Beetle

Just had one of these things flying around my room. The photo I tried to take didn't work out so taken from the web. I caught him with a shirt when he landed on the anteater climb wood. Must have come in with the anteater claw wood. Set him outside, it's been pretty warm so he should be fine.

I heard that stag beetles and rhinoceros beetles are illegal to import and keep in the US. Why are they banned?

I know people use them to fight and therefore gamble in some countries. Maybe that's why. Though, this is a native species to North America.

They are very strict about insects being imported and crossing state lines due to invasion risk.
