The Evening Post: Why Isn’t The World Covered In Poop


Yep, this has to be talked about.  The YouTube channel TED-Ed talks about why planet Earth is not entirely covered in poop.  Each day, the animal kingdom produces roughly enough poop to match the volume of water pouring over Victoria Falls.  So why isn’t the planet covered in the stuff?  Turns out, you can thank the dung beetle for eating and breaking down the poop in animal species left behind after going to the bathroom.  Yep, enjoy some interesting nature facts by Eleanor Slade and Paul Manning below!
