Le inspiration




(bowl by Gary Rith)
I love elephants. They're vegetarians too, when you think about it. I lived by the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chiacago for many years and visited frequently (it is free!). The tigers, the arctic fox, the elephants. There was elephant dung everywhere, and warnings to watch for flying dung. Apparently the elephants get moody and grab their poo and fling it at people.

The Toronto Zoo collects and sells animal dung for people to put on their gardens. Zoo Poo. :-)

The Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, and Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, WA, sell Zoo Doo, too! (oh, that was fun to write!)

In all my years of elephant gazing, I've never been warned about flying poo. I thought only monkeys did that!!

Such an educational blog you have, Gary! ;)
