the whole poop...

OK, so much talk about Poo I thought it should have it's pwm thread.

In my research about what creature's poo Jasper has been rolling in(pretty sure it is a raccoon or groundhog) I came up with some informative if not amusing threads

http://www.bear-tracker.com/animalscat.html

I especially like this stool chart...we can now be more descriptive...

and a video:

and alas, some caution about Racoon stool.

Quote:
he scoop on (raccoon) poop
CADE received a call from a concerned mother whose child accidentally ingested
raccoon stool. One of the diseases associated with exposure to raccoon feces is
Baylisascaris procyonis. This is a parasite that is excreted by raccoons and over
50 other animals and birds. This parasite can cause damage to major organs
including the liver, heart, lungs, brain and eyes in humans.

While there have been no reported cases in Iowa, there have been 25 U.S.
cases reported. Laboratory diagnosis is made by detecting larvae in tissue
specimens and can be made by ocular examination. The University Hygienic
Laboratory can identify Baylisascaris. There is no proven therapy, but
albendazole and corticosteroids have been used.

Gloves should always be worn when handling feces from animals. Hands should
be washed immediately after removing gloves and after touching animal feces if
gloves are not worn.

Okay, so someone actually goes out and takes pictures...

I showed the pictures to Riley and I am pretty sure he thinks it's a menu.

Jean, Riley and Zeus!
