Scat is where it?s at, at least when it comes to tracking some of the earth?s wildest animals. Animal dung serves many purposes, from marking territories to identifying others, and as these titles in the Scatalog: A Kid?s Field Guide to Animal Poop series relate, it also allows scientists to safely study potentially dangerous animals. In addition to describing how poop and pee reveal an animal?s diet, mating patterns, territories, and so on, the engaging text covers each animal?s habitat, range, physical characteristics, and care for its young. How to Track a Hippo explains how one of the largest land mammals is built to stay for long periods of time in water as well as the reason for hippo middens (big piles of dung) and ?dung showering.? These books are not for the squeamish as the color photos of animals in action depict a plethora of poop up close. Additional graphics also show each animal?s digestive system. For budding scientists and adventurists alike. Grades 2-4.
