If youre one of the first 100 guests at the Scoop on Poop exhibit at Zoo Miami, youll score a free T-shirt that reads Poop Happens. But dont get it twisted this crappy way to spend a day is full of fun and entertainment. You might have a tough time squeezing it all in. Were talking about the activities, folks. There will be dung beetle races, wild-animal poop tracking, foreign language poop translations, and much more. Youll even get to take a picture with your face coming out of an elephants butt. This 5,000-square-foot traveling exhibition is dropping back on Miami by poopular demand. Its all based on a hit book of the same name by Dr. Wayne Lynch, who loves his crappy job. According to Zoo spokeswoman Cindy Castelblanco, nobodys found corn, cell phones, or remote controls, but everyone will have a chance to dig through fecal samples to see what they come up with. Scoop on Poop runs until May 8. Children under two get in free, probably because theyve been providing you with their own traveling poop show for months.
