Dung Beetle

The Dung Beetle is a type of insect that collects dung to survive.
If you didn't already know this, dung is another word for poop!

Some dung beetles eat the dung, some lay their eggs in it, and some others just live in it.

Many of the beetles are rollers meaning they wait until the animal has pooped, and they roll the dung into a ball.
