It looks like yours might be a male, but I can't tell by this single image. If it had a small horn on the top of its head, it's a male. You can visit the link I provided and look at the differences in the sexes.

Nice find Scarlet576. This looks like some kind of scarabid, chaffer beetle, or dung roller
