Can you imagine paying $89,000 for a tiny insect? Well, that is the price of the stag beetle, a rather unique and very rare insect. This tiny insect is the most rare and strange species in the world. Unlike other insects, the stag beetle has red blood mandibles and protruding antlers hanging on the back of the head.
It is estimated that insects form about 80-90% of the different animal species on Earth. Some of these insects are available in plenty while other species are rarely found and give the collectors a difficult time to study them. Beetles are said to be the most sought after insects by collectors globally.

Did you ever know that insects have worth just like any other thing? Yes they do and actually there is one insect that is considered to be the most expensive of all, the Stag Beetle.
