Sacred Beetle

“Many of the dung beetles, among which the Sacred Beetle of the Egyptians, Scarabus Aegyptiorum, holds a prominent place, are remarkable for inclosing their eggs in a small pellet of dung, which they then roll along with their hind-legs, until they drop it into a hole which they have dug for its reception.” — Goodrich, 1859
