Tumblebug - African Dung Beetle and elephant by Chris McClelland
  Tumblebug  (2004)
Subject: African Dung Beetle and elephant
Dimensions (inches): 30 x 24
Medium: Graphite Pencil
Description: During the months following rain we are always fascinated with the antics of the larger dung beetles after seeing them homing in by wing to freshly laid elephant dung and breaking up the mass into balls. The almost perfectly spherical balls are then rolled away by the males doing a hand stand and pushing backwards with their hind legs. Fights often breakout between males over who rightfully owns the ball of dung. The balls will be buried and a courting female will lay a single egg in its centre.
