Animal Droppings from Spain for ID
Jonny Hodgson sent me these poo pics and wondered what species dropped them. I thought maybe a hedgehog, a large lizard or maybe a large amphibian … all of which are in the area. Perhaps even a bird?
“We live in Extremadura in Spain. We left the house early this morning, noting the scat but did not get a photo of the intact scat and on our return, it had been disturbed.
It was basically two conjoined ‘dollops’, each about 25 to 30mm in diameter.
Apart from one beetle shell, the remains within the scat are almost 100% ant body parts.”
