1. Super Strength
Many insects can lift its weight dozens, or even a hundred times over without breaking a sweat. This is proof that they’re deceptively strong. But, of all the insects in the world, it’s the super strength of the dung beetle that we wish we had.
Tested for months, researchers were able to conclude that a species of horned dung beetle is the world’s strongest insect. The species is referred to as the Onthophagus Taurus. This beetle is smaller than that of an average human hand. It is able to lift 1,141 times its own weight.
To put the beetle’s strength into perspective, it’s like the average male human lifting six full double-decker buses.
