Visitors to the Prague Zoo are being treated to a most unusual option in the souvenir shop as the zoo has started selling elephant dung as souvenirs. The Prague Zoo elephant dung comes in 1-kilo containers and retails for around $3.90.
While the idea seems ludicrous, it is actually very profitable as tubs of Prague Zoo elephant dung have been flying off the shelves. Demand has become so high that zoo officials decided to expand the sale of the dung to the weekdays as well as the weekends. You're probably wondering who is buying all of this elephant excrement. Apparently, the area's gardeners have been snatching up the dung and using it to help their crops grow. Czech gardeners are a dedicated bunch to say the least.
