….. and then a Dung Beetle rolled by!

Dung beetle, Spain

I’ve only ever seen a dung beetle on TV in a wildlife documentary programme.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this little chap, rolling his ball of poop in my garden, last Sunday afternoon!

The moral of this tale?  If you’re having a bad day, just remember – you are not this dung beetle with sh** all over your head!

If you’ve never seen a dung beetle doing what dung beetles do – here’s a YouTube video for you.


What’s the most curious thing you’ve seen recently?

  1. Yikes, Marianne! Aren’t critters amazing sometimes? I needed this laugh today, as I continue to search for jobs and continue to find sh** all over my head. I wonder if there is any point at all looking for a new job at 58!!??

  2. Ooohh, I can just imagine David Attenborough going crazy over the sight of that little fella and his big ball of dung! Great pic – you sure got up close and personal for that one!

I´d love to hear from you, and much appreciate your comments. Thank you.
