  1. The Poop Donation

There is a Canadian Museum that did something weird but charitable. They donated the poop of an extinct species to the Smithsonian. It should be noted that dinosaur researchers can indeed make a lot of discoveries form the faeces of these animals. A number of renowned palaeontologists are of the view that the faces of these long lost backboned animals can be of much use. It helps them in reliving and reconstructing the times in which these great species walked the face of the earth. The poo was opened for public viewing last month. In fact, a large number of people had poured in the museum to have a view of this one of a kind donation. The authorities of the museum have reported that when the offer had come in, they could hardly refuse it. It is an indication that the Museums in America do value any historical donations, especially the ones which are of great significance for science.
