We found this bug in our house today. So far have not been able to identify it after past hour online. Its pincers look way larger than most normal beetles I can find. Can someone help us finger out more about this critter? Thank you
That is a cottonwood stage beetle. Lucanidae, Lucanus mazama https://bugguide.net/node/view/666700/bgimage
