Scat

Visited the Highlands Nature Center today. The boy munchkin found this fantastic field guide to scat. He was particularly interested in beavers, since beavers have been rerouting all of the water on my grandfather’s farm. If you break beaver scat with a stick, it looks like sawdust. Because, you know, beavers. Beaver poop can be soft or hard, but you only find hard beaver scat. Beavers (like rabbits) eat their soft poops so they can have another shot at whatever didn’t get digested the first time through. We can’t wait to visit the farm to see what the beavers have left behind!
