Nature's undertakers

The orange antennae of a sexton beetle guide it to the body a young, dead hedgehog. The female beetle will eventually lay her eggs on the corspe, and then bury it by digging a chamber underneath the body and covering it completely. The female and her offspring then have their own larder to keep them going through the winter months.
