Compared to its body weight, the dung beetle is not only the strongest insect, but also the strongest animal.
There are three common types of dung beetles. 1) Rollers, who roll dung into round balls. 2) Tunnelers, who bury dung wherever they find it. And 3) Dwellers, who simply live in manure without rolling or burying the excrement.
Roller dung beetles can roll up to 10 times their weight. The male Onthophagus taurus beetle is the top dog - capable of pulling a ball of dung 1,141 times their own body weight.
