Which insect has disgusting taste?
Well, come on, who chew poo?
For sure some insects love this food –
It’s not a lie. They do!
The dung beetles think chewy poo’s
The yummiest food of all,
But first they'll push their tasty meals
Along in a huge ball.
Who’d like to be a dung beetle?
Oh put your hands up please!
Transporting dung in massive piles
This beetle does with ease.
Hands up who thinks he's stronger than
This beetle? No you’re not!
They’re super-insects in our world.
They’d outperform you lot!
Apart from in Antartica
You’ll find them everywhere
Shoving, pushing great poo balls
And taking lots of care.
Sat at your desk - well think ahead.
What would YOU love to do?
I’ll bet there’ll not be one of you
Who’ll work at rolling poo.
