Take Her For a Spin Like a Dung Beetle

Sure, taking your date on a quiet stroll through the park is nice, but nothing beats a spirited bike ride to show off your sporty side. When it comes to romantic outings, Dung beetles are surprisingly on the ball — even if that ball is, well, composed of excrement. After male beetles finish gathering up some dung and find a partner to mate with, the pair venture off in search of a good place to bury it — often with the female hitching a ride while the male rolls. Eventually, she lays eggs inside the ball. which will protect and provide food for the growing offspring.
