One of the things we did on our hike was to learn about different types of poo. According to our guide, you should be able to figure out what animal left the poo and what gender the animal was. I did ‘t really do well on the poo lessons. It just wasn’t something I grasped really quickly. That’s probably because I wasn’t the naturalist that some of the other group members were. They grabbed the poo stuff really quickly. I figured that once I left Africa, I would never really get to use it a lot. For example, would I really need to know if the poo that I might find around my home was left by a male or female elephant? No, of course not. Nor would I care if it was left by a giraffe. Some poo is better off left alone.
