Smelly History

Florida has a museum of poop. The South Florida Museum has the world’s largest collection of fossilized poo. It may sound like a bizarre tourist attraction, but coprolite specimens are actually valuable for paleontologists. Poop doesn’t often survive millennia, and it can provide important data about what prehistoric species ate (and what kinds of infestations they had). You can visit it at 201 10th St W, Bradenton, FL 34205.
