Get the Scoop on Poop at the San Francisco Zoo
Poop. Doo-doo. Dung. Number 2. No matter what you call it, you’ll be able to learn all about it at The Scoop on Poop, the newest special exhibition on view in the Pachyderm Building at the San Francisco Zoo from January 25 to May 11, 2014.
This fun, family-friendly exhibit features large colorful graphic panels, and three-dimensional models, as well as many interactive components where visitors can listen in on an animal’s digestive system, learn the language of poop in countries around the world, compete in dung beetle races, track wild animals by clues left in scat, see how long it takes an elephant to poop its body weight, improve their #2 IQ in “stool school,” and even meet a dinosaur dung detective!
Animals use poop to build homes, hide from enemies, attract mates, send messages, and cool off—some even eat it! Veterinarians, farmers, naturalists, paleontologists, Maasai tribesmen, and power companies use it, too. Poop is a scientific puzzle, and with a little detective work, you can learn a lot about an animal by what it leaves behind.
Created by Peeling Productions at Clyde Peeling's Reptiland in Allenwood, Pennsylvania, The Scoop on Poop is a fun, family-friendly exhibit featuring large colorful graphic panels, three-dimensional models, and interactive components. Visitors are invited to listen in on an animal’s digestive system, learn the language of poop in countries around the world, and even compete in dung beetle races!
Come to the Zoo and explore The Scoop on Poop to take a fun scientific look at a fascinating topic we all have in common.
