Dung Beetles Fighting Over Dung

A little ball of poo is a real treasure when you're a dung beetle. And in this little corner of South Africa, there must be a dearth of dung. Two dung beetles are locked in a deadly serious competition over a dung ball. The narrator can't help but laugh, while National Geographic brings us trivia about the insects in text. This has to be a metaphor for something. You can see a version of this battle with appropriate music here. -via Boing Boing

The short Bilby, also on Neatorama, opens with battling dung beetles. Did you know that dung beetles were revered by American Indians?
