Taiwan zoo to dissect poop as attraction

UPI News Service, 02/11/2013 

Zoo officials in Taiwan are turning to an odd point of interest to draw visitors during the winter season: animal poop.

The Taipei Zoo, seeking to capitalize on renewed interest in animals after the release of the 3D movie "Life of Pi," directed by Taiwanese born filmmaker Ang Lee, said it will dissect and explain the contents of animal poop three times per week for any zoo visitors interested in the smelly demonstration.

The movie depicts a young Hindu boy who survives a shipwreck and is stranded on a lifeboat for 227 days. Several animals join him on the surrealist journey.

As for how that translates into dissecting poop, zoo officials explained the display has a pointed demographic similar to the movie, Central News Agency said Sunday.

"Somehow the poo topic is very stimulating for boys from 5 to 9 years old. They could be our target audience during winter vacation," project manager Lin Jun-lan said.
