20. Certain Arachnids/Spider ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ
Certain types of arachnids, or spiders, have developed methods of disguising themselves as bird ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ to avoid becoming prey. The orb-web spider weaves a particular style of decoration on its web that, in conjunction with its silver body, makes it almost indistinguishable from bird droppings. When birds hunt, they use a type of scanning method that is similar to how a computer may scan for something. The spider’s disguise makes it not show up as a “blip” on the bird’s “radar”.
Sometimes it’s best to not know what ingreᴅɪᴇnts are in our cosmetic products, but you can probably guess that we’re about to tell you that ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ is in some of your products. You were right, and it’s Nightingale ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ, which is used many expensive anti-wrinkle creams for your face. It’s believed to work wonders against the process of aging in humans. It’s ɢʀᴏss, but yeah, animal droppings are in some face products.
Architects have a lot on their plate. They are responsible for designing buildings that must stand up to the test of time, and stand up to the weight of many humans entering the building without it collapsing. One thing that architects must take into account is the weight of animal droppings or more specifically, pigeon ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ on the rooftop of skyscrapers. Pigeon ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ, when in mass, can weigh quite a lot, even thousands of pounds. When an architect lays out the plans for their new building, the possibility of a thousand pounds of pigeon ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ adding to the top-heaviness of their structure must be taken into account.
23. Cow ᴍᴀɴᴜʀᴇ
Cow ᴍᴀɴᴜʀᴇ has had quite a many uses over the course of human history, one of which is still used today. You can actually burn cow ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ, either over a campfire or even on a grill, to keep mosquitos and flies away. While there are quite a number of different ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘs that can serve this purpose, cow ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ is preferred for several reasons. One of those reasons is that cow ᴅᴜɴɢ doesn’t breed bacteria like most other animal ꜰᴇᴄᴇs; it’s actually quite safe to handle. The other reason is that when it dries, it is easy to transport and becomes quite odorless. It may sound ɢʀᴏss, but it’s a method that has been used for thousands of years.
There are some birds that will actually shape their ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ into the form of an egg in order to reduce the risk that a predator will snatch the actual eggs. The Double-Banded Courser will use funny little methods of shaping their ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ into the form of an egg, and when a predator sneaks along to snatch up a quick meal, it gets a mouth full of disgusting bird ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ instead. That’s definitely one way to lose an appetite!
25. House Flies
House flies are in a constant state of ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘing. Food goes in, is nearly instantly digested, and goes right back out. ɢʀᴏssly enough, they are also in a nearly constant state of vomiting, since their frontal ᴇxᴄʀᴇᴍᴇɴᴛs are a way of pre-digesting food before they consume it. If a fly lands on your arm, then it has already ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘed and vomited on you. ɢʀᴏss…
Believe it or not, in the early days of the invention of the motor vehicle, cars were considered a “green” alternative to horse carriages. How could they possibly think that spewing out all those ᴛᴏxɪᴄ fumes could be a better way to travel? Well, as it turns out, horse ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ was becoming a major problem in developing areas, as it would wind up covering a great portion of the roadways through town. Oh, how far we’ve come since then.
Horse stallions are known to be quite territorial, and one method that they use to mark their territory is to make pillars of ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ. That’s right, those majestic beasts also have some dirty little tricks up their sleeve. They’ll ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ in the same location, making large piles of ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ as a way of saying: “This area is mine, and you can’t have it.”
28. Dog Mess
Dog ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ, while natural, is actually an environmental ᴘᴏʟʟᴜᴛant in human civilization. It carries all sorts of nasty little things, such as tapeworms and other parasites. So even though dog ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ occurs naturally, we should still dispose of it in urban areas.
29. Wombat ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ
The Australian Wombat has quite the funny shaped animal scat; it’s shaped like what appears to be a freshly baked loaf of bread. Their cubed ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘs are typically used to mark and claim territory for themselves. Sometimes the ᴘ.ᴏ.ᴏ.ᴘ loafs are used to attract a mate as well, using the scent and shape as an indication that he’s on the prowl for a female companion. I wouldn’t recommend trying this out on your date.
