No! I don’t have a fetish for scat. You may think so since animal droppings seem to crop up in my column pretty often. But scat is a great way to identify the presence of cryptic animals. Horny Toad scat is distinctive. It is about an inch long with a little white ball of uric acid on one end. The scat will be found on open ground. Partially decomposed scat will show bits of ant exoskeletons in it.
