A museum dedicated to faeces has opened to the public at the Isle of Wight Zoo.
The exhibition is the first in the UK to have a focus on faeces and has examples from the animal and human world including elks, lions and a baby on display.
The National Poo Museum has been created by members of the artist collective Eccleston George and features illuminated resin spheres to show off the different types of poo
Various interesting facts are also hidden behind retro toilet lids which line the museum's walls.
The display also includes fossilised poo (coprolites) dating back 140 million years, a tawny owl pellet containing bones and teeth as well as a child's shoe soiled on by a cat.
The exhibition's curators have said their mission "change forever the way we think about this amazing substance".
Poo provokes strong reactions. Small children naturally delight in it but later we learn to avoid this yucky, disease-carrying stuff, and that even talking about poo is bad.
Co-curator Daniel Roberts said one of the aims of the exhibition is also highlight important poo-related issues, "from dog mess to the effects of diet on the microbiome, to lack of access to sanitation in developing countries".
He also explained the efforts his team had to go through for their cause.
"To prepare the faeces we had to build a special poo-drying machine. A stick insect poo can be desiccated completely in an hour or so, but a lion poo can take a fortnight to dry out."
