Dung Beetle of Mars.


Observe as the hairy, Martian dung beetle leap at the chance to claim a steamy pile of shit. These excreted treasures are then rolled into lumpy spheres by the curious creature. Rich in methane, these magnificent turds are dipped into sulfur puddles and left to bake in the sun. The beetle will then bury the volatile mixture underground forming a perimeter around it's burrow. These nature's land mines are then triggered by unsuspecting trespassers. Blown to smithereens, the intruder's dismembered parts are then collected by the beetle to be displayed as trophies around it's home. If enough body parts are acquired the male stands a good chance of attracting the female species for mating.
