There are 1247400 results for: content related to: A dung beetle ( Scarabaeus nigroaeneus ) performing an orientation dance on top of its ball. During the dance, a dung beetle climbs on top of its ball and performs a series of rotations, before starting to roll its ball. This dance behaviour allows the beetles to compensate for disturbances to their straight-line rolling path, suggesting that it plays an important role in dung beetle orientation behaviour.
