History: The Ancient Egyptians observed the scarab beetle as it rolled a ball of across the ground. They identified this act with the god Khepera who they believed rolled the sun across the sky each day. The eggs which wear laid in the dung ball emerged as fully formed beetles, thus the scarab was also associated with rebirth and the mythical creation of the world.
