How Do They Make Paper Out of Elephant Poo?
And ... does elephant poo paper SMELL?
Paper is normally made from fiber from trees, of course. Elephant dung is very fibrous due to the elephant diet, and so it makes a great source for tree-free paper production. The dung is allowed to dry completely before being washed (and completely deodorized!), which basically leaves behind the fibers from the vegetation eaten by the elephants.
