They Mystery of it All

There are mysteries in nature. Two of the most exciting to me are tracks and scat. Most people can understand the fascination with tracks. They are an obvious sign that something has been there. They are cool, and people can almost imagine the animals walking in that place.

Nice, Clear Impression

But for some reason, they just don't get into scat as much. But I love it. It is another, and often more challenging mystery. Another sure sign some animal has been in that place. Put the two together, and you have an exciting story telling of the happenings of wildlife.
