Our first exhibit of 2018 is all about poop! Yes, we mean it. There’s so much to learn about animals and our environment when you get right down to it!

Jan. 27-May 6, 2018Scoop on Poop Logo sm

Poop is a scientific puzzle that provides important biological 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 fecal samples to reveal clues about wildlife. Visitors can 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.

The Scoop on Poop was created by Peeling Productions at Clyde Peeling’s Reptiland.
