Stoat droppings 3 500x500

Two stoat droppings, overlapping.

Droppings remain separate and do not adhere together, even when deposited on top of each other. This dropping was photographed at a facility at Lincoln University where stoats are held for captive research. The tapered ends of the droppings are clearly visible. Often the wild stoat droppings look darker.
