I have always wanted to see a dung beetle but had been unsuccessful until a couple of weeks ago, when like buses two appeared together.
They were both Minotaur Dung beetles (Typhaeus typhoeus).
This species can be found on heaths, moorland and mountains and are usually associated with rabbit and sheep droppings.
This particular individual is a male because he has long, more pronounced prongs protruding on the thorax.
These he will use to fight with other males to compete for females.
Dung beetles have been worshipped in some cultures and used in herbal medicines in others.
