Abstract
A number of beetles are seen on a dead mouse. They communicate primarily by acoustic signals. Copulation; then animals of the same sex fight for possession of the cadaver; the winning male and female bury it as food for their young. The larvae receive additional food from the beetles. After three larval stages they leave the empty carcass, pupate and complete their development to imago in a pupal chamber in the ground.
