    I'm pushing 70. Growing up in rural Tennessee these Twin Beetle and Ball combinations were everywhere. I was amazed at how fast two bugs could roll a ball of dung. But, they disappeared; haven't seen one in 40-years. Lots of living things are no longer here, and a lot of living things that were never here are everywhere.

    There’s so much more to dung beetles than this little tongue-in-cheek snippet: they improve soil quality, they eliminate the flies/mosquitoes/parasites and hence the necessity for pesticides, and they greatly reduce the harmful gases produced in the course of digestion and elimination of food wastage.

    After digging its nest and laying its eggs, it fetches a ball of dung from a nearby heap
    to plug the entrance; if the ball of dung is removed from its grasp en route, the beetle continues on and pantomimes plugging the nest with the nonexistent dung ball, never noticing that it is missing =))

    I suspect this real-life observation to be the origin of the Greek myth of Sisyphus, who was sentenced by the gods to push a boulder up a steep hill, only to have it get away from him and roll all the way back down again , at which point he had to start the whole process over again. Forever.

    "Dung beetles play a remarkable role in agriculture. By burying and consuming dung, they improve nutrient recycling and soil structure.[16] They also protect livestock, such as cattle, by removing the dung which, if left, could provide habitat for pests such as flies. Therefore, many countries have introduced the creatures for the benefit of animal husbandry. In developing countries, the beetles are especially important as an adjunct for improving standards of hygiene. The American Institute of Biological Sciences reports that dung beetles save the United States cattle industry an estimated US$380 million annually through burying above-ground livestock feces."

    Once in Namibia I saw a dung beetle busily digging a hole for its poop ball, then get killed by another dung beetle, which continued digging the same hole, who then got killed by Another dung beetle, who finished the hole, buried the poop and was on its merry way.

    OMG. This guy could certainly have benefited from the ministrations of an orthodontist in his youth. Maybe even now.

    Butch, the great dane we had on the ranch ate alot of horse shit and he was a full sized, healthy representation of his breed. Unlike them city great danes that look underfed and skinny like a greyhound. He was also on full feed with bacon greese dumped on it, he got into quite a few porcupines whete I had to yank the quils out of his aorry ass face and he would make quite the load around deerhunting season out of everybodys carcass piles. He lived a long 17 years bit we had to dictor him with steroids when his hind legs went out but he was back at full force after that. He was professionally trained as a gaurd dog and knew how to scare shady people from gettin out of thier vehicles and boy could he clamp down on an arm with his bear hunting sized bite.Not a good idea to wresle with him unless you wana feel his gigantic teeth crushing your arm bone. I also couldn't light fireworks arpund him cause he bite down on the explosion and that would just get him workes up and all in my buiseness for the next one. Sometimes youd be leaning on the wooden fence having a conversation and he'd come up on his hind legs and lean on the fence next to you and look down at you. He was probly the best, biggest and smartest farm dog you could ask for. I can't remember how many sun naps I took on the living room floor with the big lover while I was sposed to be working doing my chores or training horses. It's too bad dogs only have a short lifespan when they become so close to you and the family. I also miss my blue healer I lost when I left a relationship with a narcissistic farm girl. Blue healers have tons of energy, love going for rides on anything motorised, will do one eightys at frisby all day, lay in the sun with you.and always be toboggan scootin in the grass or on the snow hill. Just a happy go lucky farm dog always tryin to boss the other livestoc around like the chickens,rabbits, sheep and horses. Took her on a cannoo and she kept tryin to jump off for a swim but i grabbed her and said no since she had never swimmed before. I was gonna sneek through the back woods, steal her back and meat bqck up with a getaway driver bit I'd probly get caught so I chickened out. She would probly be happier on the farm anyway just sucks that I spent so much time raising her and running the farm with her. She used to ride in the crate on the front of my mimibike, ride shotgun on the 4wheeler and the gator and there no way to stop her. She would be so determined to go with that she'd run in front of the machine qnd bite the tires till you let her on she liked riding so bad.

    When you’re extremely sad and you watch this and laugh but then cry at the same time

      That's good. Crying is how your body releases excess chemicals/hormones that cause intense emotions. A good cry is a great way to feel better.
