Small black beetle
This little beetle rolled this object all the way across a 6-ft rug on the ground in front of our trailer. It walked backward, pushing with it's hind legs, then when it reached the end of the rug, it buried the object in the dirt. It appeared to bury itself also, but I had to quit watching & fix dinner, so I don't know if it ever came out. There is a short video, but the site won't let me upload it.
