In my feces cleanup business, I occasionally consider the placement of feces by animals, including humans. I'm sometimes amazed by the audacity of homeless people who choose public walkways to deposit their poop. Meanwhile, the tidy placement of cat feces by domestic cats has my admiration.
I know to that unlike their black cousins, brown rats generally leave their feces in corners of rooms and barns. They also leave their feces along the walls of buildings. The selection of a set type of feces placement finds parallels among other species. The Peruvian altiplano find special toilet areas. In these areas we can find thousands of tiny pieces of feces dropped on limited sites roughly 1 to 2 m across. We find that rabbits tend to do the same. Although, single hares appear not to have any such inclinations.
Llamas we patiently take their turn Llamas have a wide and windy habitat so we might assume that there's more going on and hygiene. Pics to can be easily housebroken. Given an area designed and well plum, one can keep pigs in their home, but I'm not sure why anybody would want to.
The famous writer Jack London built the world's best and most scientific pig farm on his ranch. The pigs were kept humanely in habitat that expose the pigs father and baby pigs to their mother. They had a small area to spend their lives while interacting. There feces placement suggested self-selected communal areas out of the way of foot traffic.
Generally in the wild we find that feces droppings marked the territories of flocks that have ranges that are restricted. On the flipside we have that wildebeest on the plains of Africa set off certain patches away from their browsing areas as latrines. We can see the survival mechanisms at work in this. In this way the effect sort of rotation of crops, as first one patch and then another is fertilize. Eventually they produce better grazing. In terms of natural selection, this behavior favors those wildebeest the follow this pattern of excretion. In New South Wales a team of scientists studying animal behavior in the outback you satellites and global positioning systems to localize a map the distributions of clumps of kangaroo, sheep, and goat droppings.
These satellites should not be confused with the NASA satellite called "Quik-Scat." Its place in the world is to monitor the ocean when. It has nothing to do with animal feces.
Humans to tend to confine their excretion to limit areas. We find a study in West Bengal shows that villagers prefer to confine their outdoor feces distribution to certain socially recognized sites. These sites represent only a small percentage of the total area around each village, and for obvious reasons. These areas are frequented by men in the morning and women in the afternoon. So there is a gender distribution for feces cleanup by adults.
Antelope are known to mark the ranges with dung middens. Hippos marked the ranges with slushy feces while making rapid to and fro waging of their tails. For many years Amtrak trains in the United States disposed of their accumulated human feces by spraying it around in much the same way as hippos spray their feces upon the local terrain.
Guerrillas while in wild nature now there are arboreal nests with their own feces. For them feces cleanup is not an issue because presumably they will move to another area to rest for the night. Meanwhile the7 mark their area or territory. Interestingly to in terms of guerrilla metabolism,
it can take up to six weeks for food to pass through a two toe toad while it takes a mere 20 minute passage time for several species of bat.
One of the stranger stories about human feces cleanup takes us back Saint Simeon, who gave proof to his Christian piety by remaining a top a 60 foot column from which he would lower his feces to the ground about once a week.
Bears are known to poop on top cowpats. Cats and dogs are known to poop on top of anthills and it's hard to see how this would have anything to do with a territorial dispute. For other social animals we find that spotted hyenas appear to poop collectively during set-marking patrols around the territorial boundaries. We can easily see natural selection working in this socialized pooping behavior. The more poop deposited the greater the odors of the species territorial boundaries. Other critters would make no mistake about who or what is in this territory. As a result these critters would tend to reproduce more successfully than hyenas marking territory in a solo fashion.
Badgers generally scrape shallow toilets in the ground to mark their territory, and while in their own chambers underground the set-aside special chambers as toilets. There known to create two kinds of "latrines," so that larger ones service feces with special angles males and smaller ones for casual excretions. The idea some biologists believe is to designate larger latrines for special angle smells. Similarly, African mole rats are known to live in enormously long, branched girls, and they designate certain tunnels as toilet areas. Caterpillars of the Strathmopoda moth are known to live in tunnels in the mud of mangrove swamps and are known to behave as do the African mole rats. We would call this "parallel evolution" in some sense.
Marmots, muskrats, foxes, others, and badgers marked their area with "spraints" which sounds like a take off from "skat."
English ecologists have found badger ranges by feeding peanut butter morsels to the badgers in the wild. The peanut butter contains different colored bits of indigestible plastic that is easily identified to determine the terrain for these critters. Whom bats and Australia marked their own ranges with little heaps of feces on every raise manner log on trails. To their chagrin, wound bats find they must mark their range with extra feces droppings as found in the-deep accumulations of feces and caves. The Australian goanna lizards mark their territories in the same way
Rhinoceroses are known to mark territory with middens 5 m in diameter.
There's a tiny bit of information here related to science and ecology. Some antedotal information may also enter this page as it grows.
A dump-like area for human feces and trash, and used here to apply to Rhinoceroose feces structures designating territories with their feees.
