Gazelle Dung Beetles


3 in stock


Gazelle dung beetles, Digitonthophagus gazella, are found in all states from Arizona to Florida. Males have two horns as you can see in the Bugguide photos below. Originally from Africa and Asia, they were released intentionally in Texas about 50 or so years ago to help control cattle dung. They’ve spread up to OK and MO and through all Southern states.

$2.50 each.

Yes, they eat dung. They don’t seem picky but we have little information about the preferences of this species. Appreciate you letting us know if your pet’s poop works for them! Not for release outdoors.
