Bear poop is a large mound, and often has twigs, berries and even a leaf or two in it. Though bears will eat other things, that was the scat I saw in the swamp along the Lynches.
Moose turds are larger pellets, and if you live in Alaska or some other place farther north than South Carolina, where the moose roam, they are often shellacked and given as gifts.
One last scat story. At Christmas one year a friend gave us the gift of fossilized scat. He could not have known how thrilled I would be! The dung of an ancient crawling critter. It felt a little like soapstone. A little chalky. Just thinking of it makes me want to go wash my hands.
The deer dance down the drive to my house. I go out in the morning, leaving a few tracks of my own, and check to see who they danced with the night before.
