The dung beetles in the video fall into the group of "rollers". They roll and bury a dung ball either for food storage or for making a brooding ball. When making a brooding ball two beetles, one male and one female, stay around the dung ball during the rolling process. Usually the male rolls the ball, while the female hitch-hikes or simply follows behind. In some cases, the male and female roll together. When a spot with soft soil is found, they stop an bury the ball. The female lays the eggs inside this ball after mating. The dung then provides a food source for the offspring.
