Why Dogs Eat Poop by Francesca Gould and David Haviland (Book Review 2010-89)

Product Description

A third installment in the delightfully disgusting miscellany series that began with the national bestseller, Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers and Other Useless or Gross Information About Your Body.

In the New York Times (extended list) bestseller Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers and Other Useless or Gross Information About Your Body, Francesca Gould uncovered everything you'd want to know-and a few things you'd rather you didn't-about the human body. In Why Fish Fart and Other Useless or Gross Information About the World, she scoured planet Earth for a rich assortment of odd and/or unsavory facts. In Why Dogs Eat Poop and Other Useless or Gross Information About the Animal Kingdom, Francesca Gould and David Haviland explore a subject positively rife with gross miscellany: the animal kingdom.

Indeed, animals do the darnedest things and, in this vastly entertaining book, Gould and Haviland uncover a universe of strange, hilarious, and quite often disgusting animal habits, ailments, and practices, including:

-Monkey-Faced Lamb disease;
-farting snakes;
-dino-chickens;
-and a creature you've never heard of that eats with its eyes.

Why Dogs Eat Poop is sure to delight any fan of the obscure and/ or grotesque.

LOVED IT

Books of this type are among my most favorite!  I can watch Animal Planet for hours and read trivia books to no end, so this brings together my two favorite things:  trivia and fact about animals.   This would make a great gift for animal lovers who like that "ewww-- gross" learning experience.  Unfortunately, there is no firm answer on why dogs eat poop, but there many theories though in the section on this question.
