Last Minute Monday: Human & Animal Grossology
By Jonathan McNamara
So you've sacrificed another Memorial Day weekend's worth of dogs and burgers to the porcelain god. Why not make Memorial Day a little more memorable by learning about your crap? Do you know how much scat can tell us about the animals that excreted it? How would you like to race against fellow fecal fanatics by rolling a ball of dung?
Human & Animal Grossology at Arizona Science Center will avail you the opportunity to learn more about excrement and several other bodily processes daily through September 1. Make a cartoon character burp by pouring soda down its gob. Learn more about the dining habits of mosquitos and leeches.
Who says science can't be disgustingly fun?
