This dung beetle (Catharsius molossus) is one of the most widespread coprophagous species found in the tropical Asian regions. Males can reach length of almost two inches and it quite hairy on the ventral side. The more well know scarabs of ancient Egypt are a type of dung beetle too.

Lucite block measures approx. 2 3/4 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide.

As with all Insects in Lucite, color, size and positioning can vary slightly. We guarantee a high quality specimen.

Dung beetle in resin

This shop is great. The item is just as advertised and looks terrific. I had issues about the timing for delivery and they worked with me to get it to me exactly on time. So, not only am I pleased with the product but this shop was very responsive to my needs and easy to communicate with. I look forward to doing business with them again.

Dung beetle in resin

The item was a bit smaller than expected, but the resin was nice and clear and nicely shaped. The bug specimen was also good and my nephew loved it!
