“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” - Dr. Seuss

Pooductivity

Brandi is letting me stay on poop duty until I get tired of it. Brandi, Liz, and Ruby are all working together on focal sampling. As it turns out, 2 people is really not enough to keep track of an individual, especially since we are still slow with identifications. I would say that today I earned my keep. We got an unprecedented 8 poop samples from 7 individuals, which covers half of the group. You may have noted that one individual pooped twice in our direction. As it turns out,  Uranus is a poop machine. He has produced a sample everyday, the last 3 days!

Poop collection,  however, is not all glory. While I was collecting a poop sample, Unia peed in my hair. It was not pleasant. When we got back to camp, Riccardo (who is super serious and always appears as if he disapproves) said that their pee is really acidic and said my hair was going to look like a “spotted cat.” For the record, their pee will only really dye your clothes.
