Well, I got online and did a little research. I really enjoyed the Kids National Geographic site. First of all, I found out that our dung beetles are 'rollers'... they roll the dung into balls. (And, our beetles looked just like this photo.) They will bury these balls and use them for food or to lay their eggs in!
These beetles are helpful for livestock! They bury dung that might otherwise attract pests like flies. Also, they are returning useful nutrients to the ground! So, I was thrilled to find these two little helpful creatures on our ranch!
