My favorite thing about dung beetles is that they're the first animal known to navigate at night using the Milky Way!! https://blog.nationalgeographic.org/2013...

I find them fascinating. Saw my first in Kenya, and I must have taken at least 50 photos of the thing. I didn't know there were so many species.

😊 Have to give them top marks for persistence , this one was taking it up a slight slope and didn't see the pebble at the other side.

Such a fun hobby. It's hard not to love a dung beetle :)
