Is There A Scatologist In The House?...

Megan was out on her daily scat safari in our yard when she happened upon this odd looking turd. It was very dark and had sort of a pine cone effect happening. It should be established that the quarter you see was not part of the original poop. It is merely for scale. We thought is was from a deer, but deer scat looks more like THIS or THIS. If this is from a deer, I'm guessing it's pretty a constipated deer. Granted, I'm no expert. This is pure speculation on my part.

Not to be a dick but I got a huge novelty quarter in 5th grade that was about 4" long. Is this a scam?

Doc said...

That is raccoon shit. I'd know it anywhere.

It's badger poop. Maybe.

I'm with SkylarsPappy. It looks like bear. And not the cute, cuddly kind.

I actually think it is deer scat. I think what you got there is a bunch of pellets mushed together. Sometimes when ruminants get scared they delay pooping until danger is past, maybe that's what caused the constipated look?
