Sage, that would make a great video for your blog! I've never seen a dung beetle, don't know if we have them here. My fav beetle from childhood (s.louisiana) was something we called a cop-cop beetle. If you pressed on them at the juncture between throax and abdomen, they'd pop! into the air. Then they could crawl away. It looked like they had huge eyes painted on them, but it was just a decoy. I haven't seen any of those in a long time, even out here where there is plenty old trees and decaying wood for them to eat. Maybe they don't live this far from the coast.
