Why is wombat poo square?

Scientists discover why wombat poop is cube-shaped

https://www.cnet.com/google-amp/news...s-cube-shaped/

Link from wodin that actually tells you why:

https://www.livescience.com/64119-wo...oop-cubes.html

Quote:
Wombats go through all this effort for a reason, the statement said. They don't see or hear very well, so they stack their poops in important places to guide themselves around and to signal their presence to other wombats. A big pile of cubic poops is the wombat equivalent of a "Hello, there."

The first pic was uploaded with tapatalk. How do I look to see what the size is? I want to know if I can use tapatalk for images.

I'm wondering how much it cost to figger that out.

Quote:
a team of researchers led by Patricia Yang of the Georgia Institute of Technology said that they've figured it out.
A team? Really?

Your link has more info - the title in mine says they found out why, but never tells us. I'm adding it to the 1st post.
