I remember I was on this hike and a random beetle flew on my pants. I started running around and smacking myself.

Thank u for replying my topic guys.This is my ist topic here.

Relax,jimmystang.Dung beetles wont bite you,they are benign.

And [email protected], I'm wondering that are you major in Entomology?

Ok,no problemo.

I got these dung beetles under cattle dropping(or horse),80% speices in my town are "tunnelers", others are "rollers"(Pic1 is a roller, pic2 is a tunnelers).In fact, most dung beetles like "human dropping" best, but it's really hard to find one.

I never breed them, what can I feed them?I can't bring their "food" home :lol: ...Maybe I can try it this summer.

Anyway, I like them.They're cute, funny, and kindly. And in my opinion, dung beetles symbolize the cycle & renascence ~~
