The Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, California, is unearthing some stinky, slimy, and nasty secrets of animal behavior with their latest exhibit, Animal Grossology, which runs this Friday (May 23) through September 1.
According to spokesperson Julie Smith, all animals, including house pets like dogs and cats, do gross things that would surprise and sicken anyone.
For instance, some species of frogs give birth by burping out their babies.
Also, the flies that land on your plate are actually barfing up their dinner and having some of your meal for seconds.
Smith says, Its pretty disgusting. It actually gets to me. But thats how flies work, so I guess we have to respect that. Humans do gross things too.
Curious kids can also become excrement explorers with the party pooper exhibit, in which they have to investigate which animal left a turd in a penguin house by doing doo-doo detective work.
