I wonder why this guy isn’t part of the top 5 on the list... seems fair though but they generate enough oil for days as long as you supply them with poop... they basically are a safer and easy way to gather oil.
They can destroy wooden structures. I was in the east underwatercave for deep SEA loot and Had a 1x1 wooden House with a bed. I had No weapon and so a lvl 200 dungbeatle Killed me nearly, Destroyer my bed and my foundation not what i expected.
I find it best to go to the valcano on rag me and my tribe mate we’re able to tame about ten dung beetles there. I recommend bringing a Phiomia And some stimberries for quick poop. It can get a bit dangerous so also bring something with strength personally I just brought a wyvern and it worked fine.
For Mobile Players: There are multiple tips suggesting to put the beetle in a cage; don't. The little bugger has gotten out of mine several times and needed to be 'recalled'. Resorted to building a stone window frame box around him. Still gives access from any side, and he stays put.
On the island, I think the easiest place to find them is in the lower south cave. Go in with a longneck or a shotgun, turn left at the first intersection, kill the boas and spiders I. The first chamber, near the end of it there’s usually 1-3 beetles. Tame, and carry back to base w/ Petra. Easy fertilizer.
Turns human and dino poop into oil and fertilizer. Make sure the dung beetle is on wander and has plenty of poop, it takes about 15 min per cycle.
1 Human poop becomes 1 fertilizer and 2 oil
2 Small poops become 1 fertilizer and 2 oil
1 Medium poop becomes 2 fertilizer and 4 oil
1 Large poop becomes 3 fertilizer and 6 oil
1 massive poop becomes 16 Fertilizer and 14 oil.
Every cycle can do one "transaction" for each type of poop for a maximum of 7 fertilizer and 14 oil without massive poop or 23 fertilizer and 28 oil with a massive poop.
In Valguero I saw some of them on the bottom of a dragon nest along with Titanoboa's too and I believe Mantis too (don't remember too well) anyways I only found out because sadly ice dragons are gigantic jerks and froze me at the same time that my pteranodon ran out of stamina as I started to descend down to the lava I spotted the dung beetles before dying and losing my stuff. So if you have strong tames head to the snow zone and it should be around the edge of the top right side of your map once you see the ice dragons flying around there nest shouldn't be too far fly down and it should be there.
