    Dung beetles would be good at holding corporate executives resopnsible – they are used to making crap roll uphill.

    @Digital Frog

    Yes, and they can’t see where they’re going so they’d be ideal for heading a committee.

    But those coporate executives now know they can shine up all the excrement they produce.

    And who eats the dung beetles’ dung,
    And ad infinitum?
    Bacteria rule!
    The Earth is their kingdom!

    I read in last week’s THIS WEEK, that dung beetles navigate by using the stars to find their way to ‘roll along,’ the same way that birds do.

    A dung beetle’s prized possession is that carefully rolled ball of dung.

    The dung beetle is also the intermediate host for Spirocera lupi, a nematode that infects canids and felids. The worm matures in the wall of the esophagus which forms a nodule around the worm. In some cases, the tissue in the wall of the nodule can transform to malignant tumors, especially osteosarcoma or fibrosarcoma. This worm is found in the US but is not common. Dogs are infected when they ingest an infected dung beetle. Here endeth your science moment for today.
