Rachel Maddow Wants to Know, Who Pooped?

Oh joy! I have discovered another reason why I love Rachel Maddow. The totally original MSNBC news anchor and XX Factor heartthrob twittered a link yesterday to Minnesota Zoo’s interactive game highlighting their new Africa exhibit . (Maddow’s tweet: ” My inner 8 year old will not let me do anything today that does not somehow involve this website: .” ) The game called “Who Pooped?” features cartoon images of zebras, ostriches, and giraffes eating and then … yes, pooping, to educate players on how scientists examine wild animal scat in order to study the creatures’ consumption habits.
