To Understand, You Must Sift the Poo

There's something to be said for sifting through feces. Most times it's just a chore that has to be done like taking out the recycling (do I repeat myself?), vacuuming, or perhaps cooking a nice pasta carbonara.

For researchers in Madagascar, fine-toothing some primate poop led to an interesting discovery about their lifestyle and patterns. They learned that the sifaka, a large primate that lives high in the tree tops, was more intelligent and community-centered than previously thought. Hooray!

Maybe they could check out the poop of Keanu Reeves and finally see what most of us have apparently missed for the last decade.
