The Dung Beetle (Nigracassida, meaning Dark-helmet) measure 3-4 inches in length.


Thanks to huge herbivores - like Brontosaurus - impressive deposits of dung were abundant on Skull Island. The Dung Beetle Nigracassida tirelessly harvested small balls of dinosaur scat, burying them for later. The beetles' principal enemy was the White Wedgehead (Cuneatusoris alba), a sixteen-inch lizard that specialized in eating them.
