Critter of the Week: Mokohinau stag beetle

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:25 pm on 17 February 2017

Our critter this week is only found in one location in the world and the total population size is unknown. One catastrophic event - a fire or effects of climate change, could as good as exterminate this species.
