scarab beetle

unknown scarab beetle, possibly Geotrupes genus of the dung beetles? this guy's a little the worse for wear but we met up with a more lively one further down the path. it wasn't secretive at all but crawled around actively and stridulated upon being poked.

 

still working on that depth of field thing.

    note! apparently "dumbledor" is a british word for dung beetle!

    Could you see how it was stridulating?

    I love these guys but I didn't know about dumbledor. Thanks!
