Spike the Stag Beetle is the latest pet we all want to have. And he’s becoming a social media sensation for his supreme artistic abilities. Spike, a black stag beetle, lives in Japan with his English-teaching owner.
Stag beetles are popular pets in Japan, where they’re known as kuwagata, and celebrated for their samurai helmet-like horns.
Spike doesn’t wield any katana swords with his mighty pincers, but it turns out that he’s pretty good with a paintbrush, and frequently creates colorful avant garde sketches.
He also happens to be a big fan of snuggling under soft blankets, and politely eating dinner at the table.
Follow the adorable and gentlemanly adventures of Spike the Beetle.
