the country life, how I love thee

We were walking down to pick some veg this noon and something caught our eye. I ran back to the shack to catch the camera and watch the little fella. It was quite amazing to watch as when he rolled his little pooball he was  standing on his head and backward..


  1. I remember reading about dung beetles in one of my favorite EVER books "My Family and Other Animals" by Gerald Durrel when I was about twelve years old. But I'VE NEVER SEEN ONE, SO THANKS A LOT! THIS WAS COOL! Oops sorry about caplock but you should totally pick up that book you can get it in any used bookstore

  2. i had never seen one in action before either,, it was pretty neat to sit n watch.. one of the dogs nearly ran over him once and he stopped and played dead for about 5 minutes until he was sure danger was gone.. small things amuse me greatly :)
