Spike the Superstar Beetle

Spike is a stag beetle who lives in Japan with his 27-year-old human, an English teacher named Mandy.

Stag beetles are popular children’s pets in Japan, Mandy told BuzzFeed News (Mandy asked her last name not be used for this story).

Mandy first became interested in getting a beetle after she saw them being sold at a festival.

She bought Spike around six months ago, and now also has three other beetles named Sally, Julius, and Cleo.
