How about this one? Once on a camping trip I found one of these suckers crawling in my tent. I used a metal dust pan and whacked it about ten times and it didn't even faze it. I scooped it up & pitched it outside and it easily scuttled away. Ruined any good night's sleep I might have had on that particular trip. It's called a Lucanus mazama and they are like armored tanks. Yeeaacch. Are you now vomiting?
