What species is this? It was found in Turkey. It was dead, I did not kill it.

Looks like a scarab beetle (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae). Species is difficult to tell without better pictures, but perhaps Scarabaeus typhon?

Edit: OP has IDed in comment as Scarabaeus jalof

    $\begingroup$ @augurar I forgot to edit my comment it is not typhon. It is a S. jalof. c4.staticflickr.com/4/3510/3847992837_b3aa34f400_b.jpg $\endgroup$ Jun 28 '15 at 14:06
