Isle of Wight Zoo celebrates poo with new museum

Tuesday, March 15, 2016 - 16:58

THE Isle of Wight Zoo has revealed plans for a new attraction that is not to be sniffed at — the National Poo Museum.

The Sandown-based zoo announced today (Tuesday) that it would be opening the new museum on Good Friday.

Promising it was not an early April Fool's Day prank, a spokeswoman said: "It's stinky, unpleasant and sometimes dangerous stuff — but it’s all around us and inside us too — and perhaps surprisingly our planet would be a much poorer place without it!

"The National Poo Museum is set to be the place to immerse oneself in the wonder of excrement while finding out lots of extraordinary nuggets of information about all things poo-y, kids will love it!"

The project has been developed in conjunction with Isle of Wight landscapers and artists Ecclestone George, who have previously helped to create some of the big cat enclosures at the zoo.

Visitors will be treated to exhibits including everything from the hedgehog-like Lesser Madagascan Tenrec to lions and even a 38 million year old poo.

The freeze-dried displays will be hung from the ceiling.
