Canthon triangularis is a dung beetle documented in 2005. This was just one of over 40 species of dung beetle documented, of which as many as 30% may be species new to science. Dung beetles are valuable to ecosystem health. By digging through soil, they air it out and allow the recycling of nutrients. (Trond Larsen/ Conservation International)
