Dig deep into the bowels of your photo albums. If it hopped, walked, slithered, crawled, or ran and you’ve got a photo of the track it left… share it! No self respecting scat will be turned away and to spice this contest up a little bit… I’m tossing owl pellets into the mix... bet you were wondering what the P was in this tracks and scat contest. That P stands for Owl pellets!!! Yes, owl pellets I say. They are definitely a clue that an animal has passed through so it didn’t seem proper to shun photos of those delectable regurgitated chunky bits of indigestible animals parts such as bones from any self respecting tracks and scat contest at Wildlife Gardeners.
The Pied Piper of Poop Aficionados (Equilibrium) says get ready, get set... go out unto the wilds to photograph and post all those tracks, pellets, and scat you find starting Nov 1st right here in this thread!!!

While you're out next week looking for photo ops, you'll have a few more things to look for. Snags are out. Poops are in.

WG's very first poop poster but... your precious poop jumped the gun. Other poops are going to be screaming unfair pooperitism. I have no idea how to add this to my signature. Somebody added my signature for me and I forgot who did it. Somebody added my avatar too. I don't remember who did either one. I'm lucky I know how to post photos and make type bold and italic. Can you add it for me?

They said the judge's decisions were final soooooooo, I can count your premature poop. No more premature poopies, ok? Can you put the little blue footprint and the dancing poop in my signature? I know how much everyone loves that dancing poop. Won't everyone be jumping with joy if they saw a pawpring and a poop at the end of every one of my posts?
