Hi there guys.

This photo was taken in Denmark, with wetlands nearby. Kangaroo and Pig country.
Any idea who once owned it?

Cheers

Roo

with pigs you would have noticed a strong odur with it being as fresh as pic shows and scat should be flatter and rounder

Not necessarily sometimes they are strung together with grasses. It also shows a sign of rich food sources.
pigs generally eat a varied diet and being a lush area as pic indicates food for pig would not be scares so it would include bones feathers etc and for pigs scat to form like that it would be on vegetaion diet mainly not mixed

Interesting question...

I'll second 'roo scat... pig scat looks a lot like human scat, since our digestive systems are similar and we share similar eating habits (Omnivours)...

Some examples:

Pig_scat02.jpgscant1.jpghog-scat-bhead-oly-3-3-01-hogs-wild.jpg

The first one shows the "Human" scat type on a vegetable only diet, it's "Muddy" and has a "Formless" quality, the last three are each slightly different, this is a side effect of the diet of the animal in the 24 hours prior to evacuation...

we have the solid "Human" scat type showing the animal has eaten a mixed diet, the "Tappered" scat type showing the animal has been eating mostly flesh and very little vegetable matter and finally we have the "beaded" scat type, this is from a young animal eating a mixed diet whith plenty of fluids taken in.
