Also referred to as the scarab beetle. Many dung beetles, known as rollers, are noted for rolling dung into spherical balls, which are used both as a food source and brooding chambers. Other dung beetles, the tunnelers, bury the dung wherever they find it. A third group, the dwellers, neither roll nor burrow: they simply live in manure. Dung beetles live in many different habitats, including desert, farmland, forest, and grasslands.
Most of the times while on Kenya safaris, the dung beetles are seeing eating dung excreted by herbivores and omnivores, and prefer that produced by the former. Many of them also feed on mushrooms, decaying leaves and fruits.
