Looking for a Specific Type of Dung Beetle.


Recommended Posts



As I mentioned in my introductory post, I'm a reptile keeper who is looking for various species of insects to add to my enclosures to serve as in-tank maintenance crews; to that end, I wonder if anyone is aware of species of dung beetles that specialise on lizard excreta. I have done some reading around the subject of dung beetles, and have seen it suggested that there is a species of dung beetle for pretty much any animal you can think of; but I have also read that by preference, dung beetles opt for the waste of herbivorous and omnivorous animals. So is anyone aware of any species of dung beetle that would meet my criteria?


Kindest regards,
