Beetle Bébert.

english translation:
Meet Bebert.
Bebert is a Geotrupidae (from Greek geos, earth, and trypetes, borer), a member of the family of beetles in the order Coleoptera. They are commonly called dor beetles or earth-boring dung beetles.
Wings-equipped, the geotrupidae can fly with a characteristic buzzing.
Do I look "characteristic" to you? WTF.
Those insects are typically detrivores, provisioning their nests with leaf litter (often moldy), but are occasionally coprophagous, similar to dung beetles.
Yeah, yeah. Not my favourite meal really. and I… Uh? what's that?
They sometimes drink the sap of cutted trees or mature fruits.
GOD! Look at that!
You can witness dozen of them dying in a beer can left in the forest.
Yumm, it's an 5-days-old' one at least!

english translation:

(singing): 99 bottles of beer (hips) on the wall…:drunk:

According to the latest news, Bebert and his pals are alright, they are sleeping it off in lamma's garden.

I got up to 6 drunken beetles a day, falling in the garden. Even my cats are bored.
But every time, I felt I HAVE to help them to rollover upright.

    😆 Had a similar thing happen in our front garden in Canada. There was some sort of berry bush and the fruit had all fermented. One morning a flock of birds came and stripped it bare, then spent the rest of the day swarming around the garden like mad things.
