Dung Beetles

Different Types of Beetles

Dung Beetles

There are approximately 5,000 of these species and they feed either partially or exclusively on animal feces. Many species are known as rollers and roll their dung into balls that are used for brooding chambers or as a food source.

Some are burrowers that tunnel dung where they find it and a third group doesn’t tunnel, or burrow but instead, lives in the manure.
