Large round balls (a little larger than baseball or cricket balls) made of dung with a layer of earth/sand covering them.
Found in a sandy patch in the bushveld.
These balls had not been given the chance to incubate the dungbeetle larvae, as a larger animal (most likely a honey badger) had dug them up from the earth and broken them open to get to the larvae inside.
