This dung has plenty of fibrous material from grasses. It is often found relatively close to where humans live. Some people even collect it, dry it and use it as fuel!

Who pooped?

Leave a comment below with your guess. We will reveal the answer in the comments section on Tuesday, September 6th.

If you have your own natural history mystery (an unidentified animal, plant or other specimen), send a photo or two to naturalist@calacademy.org. We’ll do our best to help out. Please include location, date and any other details that seem pertinent.
