Dogs Poop Aligned To Earth's Magnetic Field

Image

Scientists at the Cezch University of Life Sciences in Prague have found that dogs are sensitive to Earth's magnetism. In fact, they're so sensitive that they poop aligned to the planet's magnetic field.
The research paper—published in the journal Frontiers in Zoology—says that dogs "prefer to excrete with the body being aligned along the North-south axis under calm MF (magnetic field) conditions." Apparently, if the MF is unstable–like when Earth is hit by a solar flare—they get confused. These were their conclusions:

Introduction
Several mammalian species spontaneously align their body axis with respect to the Earth's magnetic field (MF) lines in diverse behavioral contexts. Magnetic alignment is a suitable paradigm to scan for the occurrence of magnetosensitivity across animal taxa with the heuristic potential to contribute to the understanding of the mechanism of magnetoreception and identify further functions of magnetosensation apart from navigation. With this in mind we searched for signs of magnetic alignment in dogs. We measured the direction of the body axis in 70 dogs of 37 breeds during defecation (1,893 observations) and urination (5,582 observations) over a two-year period. After complete sampling, we sorted the data according to the geomagnetic conditions prevailing during the respective sampling periods. Relative declination and intensity changes of the MF during the respective dog walks were calculated from daily magnetograms. Directional preferences of dogs under different MF conditions were analyzed and tested by means of circular statistics.

Results
Dogs preferred to excrete with the body being aligned along the North-south axis under calm MF conditions. This directional behavior was abolished under Unstable MF. The best predictor of the behavioral switch was the rate of change in declination, i.e., polar orientation of the MF.

All I know is that, the next time I go out and find a dog's shit, I will take out my compass app and see if the alignment is complete. :D

Hmm when I built our bathroom I put the toilet facing exactly north :mrcool: , however my dog poops facing in whatever direction he is going in generally, but most of all he likes to poop outside his arch enemy the Alsatians house just to piss him off.

Scientists really do research some shit these days.

...geez... I often wondered why on some toilets I like to "side-straddle"...

Of all of the possible stories in all the universe of all time, it all boils down to dog poop.

Itsa conspiracy I tell ya, a conspiracy.

That's awesome. No wonder my dog has to spin around 300 times (600 if it's cold or raining) before he can drop the deuce. His little ass is a furry compass. Bwahahaha.

"Can we some Benny Hill music on this please................. thank you!"


My ACD spins as well.. and I always thought that the muscles in the large intestines wasnt pushing his poop out fast enough... thats why he spins, either that or he wants to cover more ground with his poop... who knows my Dingus.


Found this tho:
