Well, I got word back from the lab at Texas AM today. Want to guess what they said ?? You guessed it ! They said they could not determine what species left this scat. Dr. Terry Hughs commented that it looked human-like to him. They thought it was interesting that I thought it might be chimp. Once again, I think I mentioned on this forum only slightly tongue in cheek that I have double checked myself on many occasions lately, and I haven't produced any sample as robust (or foul) as this sample.
So the official word from A&M is THEY DONT KNOW what species did the feces !
Again, the scat and the track are just down the road from each other and very near (about 4 miles from)our well known BarBQue area.
Imagine that. Wonders never cease. LOL!
