Description: THE SACRED EGYPTIAN SCARAB BEETLE WAS THOUGHT TO HOLD THE POWERS OF EVERLASTING LIFE. EGYPTOLOGISTS BELIEVE THAT THIS PARTICULAR SPECIES SCARABAEUS SACER IS THE DIRECT DESCENDANT OF THE ANCIENT ORIGINAL EGYPTIAN SCARABS THAT WERE FOUND AROUND THE PYRAMIDS. THE EGYPTIANS USED TO WEAR THESE DUNG ROLLER BEETLES ON SIMPLE CORDS AROUND THEIR NECKS.
