    Dung beetles navigate by stars

    Well, we have to admit it. We are not the only ones out there at night trying to set a course line from Sun, Moon and stars.

    A recent study claims dung beetles use the Sun, the Moon and even the Milky Way - to navigate a straight line while rolling their balls of dung.
