Free mini-workshop in Pinellas- Scatology

Scatology: The Study of Scat (Animal Poop)

A free mini-workshop and educational display by George L. Heinrich (Heinrich Ecological Services)

Have you ever seen scat while hiking on a trail and wondered which species left it behind? Perhaps it was from a gopher tortoise, coyote or alligator. This family-oriented, mini-workshop and educational display will allow participants to see a variety of preserved specimens and learn about the value of scat to wildlife biologists and naturalists. Workshop participants will also dissect gopher tortoise scat to learn what these reptiles have been eating.
