Product Description
 
Simple science text and dramatic illustrations give a close-up view of the fascinating world of the dung beetle. When an animal lightens its load, dung beetles race to the scene. They battle over, devour, hoard, and lay their eggs in the precious poop. Dung is food, drink, and fuel for new life-as crucial to these beetles as the beetles are to many habitats, including our own.Simple science text and dramatic illustrations give a close-up view of the fascinating world of the dung beetle.
