does it digest the beatle while it's in there? I mean, I know they're it's pollinators, but why trap the thing in there?

I don't know if dung beetles or carrion beetles are really effective pollinators on their own.
I mean, bees and butterflies pick up the pollen on hairs on their legs, then some gets transferred when they next land.

My guess is that by closing to keep the beetle in for longer, it exchanges more pollen?
This isn't a carnivorous plant, though.

Yeah, I think so. Im guessing its like a venus fly trap, they dissolve insects and the nutrients absorb into them

I thought fly traps "ate" flies to get the needed minerals they can't find in the soil they are located.
