Beauty..I guess.. Is this a coward sport like pit bull fighting...like they let them fight until they kill eachother or just until they pin them down?

nah.. it's much more human.the beetle needs to shove the other off a piece of wood of large stick.the ones that fall off are caught by their masters and the on thats still on is the winner

oh, the original question: crayfish, snails and ghost shrimp all eat poopoo. the only problem is, they just make it into more poopoo. Shrimp, crayfish and snail poopoo is much cleaner looking though, it's a nice little pelletized form whereas fish poop is a slimy tube of gross.

and americans use pit bulls and cocks..why can't we use insects? Actually I am sure if something will battle it has been used (we probably have a betta fighting ring)...but that's how you make the big bucks..gambling on lives..instead of working for it yourself..
