Photo: Scoop on Poop Dished Out by New Exhibition



Young visitors enjoy a display on dung beetles at "The Scoop on Poop" exhibition at the Miami Metrozoo in Florida.

The new traveling exhibit aims to help people learn how scientists use excrement to unravel an animal's biology, how critters use poop to build homes and hide from enemies, and what to do about the growing problem of human waste.
