Does It Fart
The ultimate guide to animal flatulence: the perfect gift for anyone who
has ever farted.
Dogs do it. Millipedes do it. Dinosaurs did it. You do it: I do it.
Octopuses don't (and nor do octopi). Spiders might do it: more research
is needed. Birds don't do it, but they could if they wanted to. Herrings
do it to communicate with each other.
At the beginning of 2017, an innocent question on twitter about snakes
formed the hashtag #doesitfart and spread pungently across the internet
– and major newspapers – as dozens of experts weighed in on which
animals do and don't fart, and if they do, how much, how often, what
it's made of, what it smells like, and what it's for.
