Our mornings are spent hiking around the house looking for signs of the previous nights visitors.
We take photos and document what we find.
It’s like CSI for animal poop.
Sometimes we recognize right away what we’re dealing with.
But most times we take photos, load them up to the CPU and
spend our afternoons comparing photos of animal scat.
We even picked up this handy book at a recent homeschool curriculum sale.
We’re starting to think we’re experts.
However. We’ve found a couple that have stumped us.
(read: we disagree upon)
And since everyone was so helpful in identifying
the crazy bug we found last month we are reaching out for some scat identification help.
So can you help?
Background information: We live in a forested area in Southern Oregon.
Lots and lots of forest, lots of deer and a few turkey. We don’t have cats or dogs (yet) but it’s possible we had stray visitors from neighbors down the way.
Found in our yard this morning.
Some whitish type fur or something too.
Pictured slightly smaller then real life.
(guess: I’m pretty sure this is a stray cat, but the boy says coyote.)
Found in more woodsy area near our house.
Shown at about half size.
Absolutely NO SMELL.
Please don’t ask how I know this
(guess: large dog? smushy deer? usually we see the pile of pellets….hmmmm.)
Found practically on our back porch railing. Close to actual size.
(guess: bird family?)
So there you have it folks.
A post about poop.
What do you think?
