Watch #Beetles Devour A #Dead #Rat

I hope you aren't eating your tea. This time lapse video shows sexton beetles over a 24 hour period as they completely bury a dead rat and then remove all its fur. It takes the beetles 12 hours to bury the rat. The video is part of After Life: the science of decay,  a full-length programme airing on BBC Four later this year.
