Poop is a scientific puzzle that provides important evidence about animals and how they live. Animals use poop to build homes, hide from enemies, attract mates, send messages and cool off–some even eat it. Discover the science behind scat by examining feces to reveal clues about wildlife. Listen to an animal’s digestive system, view 3-D models, touch a termite mound replica and compete in dung beetle races in this informational and interactive exhibit. Find out how scientists, farmers and power companies utilize pounds of droppings for investigative research. See highlights from the world’s largest private collection of fossilized poop and gator coprolites from the Museum’s collection.
