I think this is a burying beetle, I like its yellow front feet. Can you tell me anything about it.

Dear P,
We believe this is a Dung Beetle and not a Burying Beetle.  What you have mistaken for a yellow foot is actually the antenna.  We found a Dung Beetle with yellow antennae from Costa Rica pictured on DreamsTime.
