A burying beetle (Nicropholus concolor)

A burying beetle (Nicropholus concolor), on the corpse of a mole, in the first stage of preserving it as food for its young: it is removing hair from the carcass and will then cover it with antibacterial and antifungal secretions before digging a hole underneath and burying the body perhaps as much as 30 cm below ground. Gunma Prefecture, Japan
