Product Description

Many insects are popular, but on the other hand many are burdened with a negative image (flea, louse, bedbug, mosquito, cockroach). But especially with beetles, many names trigger positive associations (e.g. ladybugs). Worldwide among the "front runners" of the positive list are scarabs -- the dung beetle, the holy pillbug of ancient Egypt. Their way of life, which is instinctively driven, moves parallel to human behavior. And that makes this little guy so likeable!

Move your scarab around the board collecting dung and bringing it back to your goal line. But don't get stepped on by the elephant! First to collect the predetermined amount wins.
