Dung Beetle - Got to love your Job
A Dung Beetle rolls her bounty away. She will lay exactly 1 egg in this ball, bury the treasure and then move on to find another wonderful dung producer.
These species are considered to be an indicator species. If they are found in a specific environment (within their natural range of occurrence), that environment is considered "healthy" and operating as it should. Their lack shows a deficiency in one of the cycles (mainly processing dung and waste). By them burying dung, they also involuntarily enrich soils with nutrients, much more so than if the dung was just left on top of the soil.
