The Scoop on Poop
Everyone does it yet poop is one of those subjects difficult to talk about with a straight face.
In this exhibition, guests can listen in on a bear's digestive system, learn the language of poop in countries around the world, examine fecal samples in a veterinarian's lab, compete in dung beetle races, track wild animals by clues left in scat, see how long it takes an elephant to poop their body weight, and meet a dinosaur dung detective in this fascinating exhibition that reveals what we can learn about animals by examining what they leave behind.
