Scientists came together to help satisfy our curiosity about which animals fart, and which do not.
“As you can see by the list most of the answers were ‘yes’, so a lot of animals fart – just like us,” he told BuzzFeed News. “I think it’s interesting how this may have started a new debate of ‘what is a fart’.
“Using a Google sheet that anyone can go in and edit seemed like the best way to get the most info as we can and engage as many people as possible,” Caruso told Gizmodo.
“Obviously user-submitted responses not subject to any verification or oversight should be taken with a grain of salt,” he added.
Caruso told BuzzFeed News that he doesn’t have any plans for the spreadsheet. Instead he’ll focus on his dissertation, with the hope of graduating in May this year.
