Dozens of further filthy animal facts and falsehoods: the follow-through to the international bestselling sensation Does it Fart? How many spiders do you eat in your sleep? What does the ice-cream you eat have to do with the back end of a beaver? Do komodo dragons have toxic slobber? Is it true that a scorpion that sheds its tail dies of constipation? How far actually are you from the nearest rat? Can you get high from licking toads, or is that...fake newts? All this and far, far more can be found in True or Poo?, a guide to the wonders of the natural world: and a manual for disgusting and one-upping your friends and enemies for years to come.
Nick Caruso is a PhD student and salamander expert at the University of Alabama. Dani Rabaiotti is a PhD candidate and zoologist who studies African wild dogs and climate change at London Zoo.
"[...] Dani Rabaiotti and Nick Caruso are zoologists with a gift for using humour to help us better understand Earth's fauna. True or Poo? is a follow-up to the internationally successful Does it Fart? published by the duo in 2017. [...] Having read both books, I believe True Or Poo improves on Does It Fart, primarily because the book broadens to consider a range of topics and stories beyond animal excretions without losing the humour! Finally, if you have questions about any terminology used, or about the scientists who contributed ideas and references to the book, be sure to read all the way through to the end!"
