Poop Paper

2

Did you know that an elephant plops out about a hundred pounds of poop per day? That's because an elephant's basically inefficient digestion system dumps out about 50% of what it takes in.

One day's worth of elephant poop is enough to produce 115 sheets of paper? That’s because elephant poop is mostly fiber ideally suited for manufacturing paper.

DIAPERS NOT NEEDED!

Vultures often squirt their soft poop on their legs.

Here's why:

You know how you feel cooler when your skin is wet than when it's dry? Scientists have studied vultures' body temperatures when the birds' legs were dry and when they were covered with wet poop.

You guessed it:

the poop helped the birds stay cool onwarm days.

Many species of monkeys and primates will fling their poo like a bomb.

Animals mark their territory with their droppings.

A hippopotamus will mark a trail down to the water with dung so that he can find his way at night.

Some caterpillars try to camouflage themselves to look like bird droppings to avoid being eaten

Other animals will roll in the scat of their prey to mask their own scent

The Dung Beetle uses balls of dung to lay it’s eggs in. Once the eggs hatch, the dung becomes a nursery for the young with plenty to eat!

Worth your weight in…elephant dung

African elephants are the biggest poopers of all land animals. They can poop up to 30 lbs of dung per hour (0.5 lbs per minute). How long would it take for an elephant to excrete a your body weight in poop?

Your weight x 2 minutes = # total minutes
