yes well any critter that moves and uses poop all day for the benefit of its own and the environment is pretty darn awesome in my books. You could call a dung beetle an extrordinary permaculturist! lol

Our property is quite small and we have several tools called pick-a-poo. They are pastry thongs I buy at the second hand store. I use them daily, but the kids don't like the job, even if I offer them 50 cents a bucket full.
