Tracey Lee’s collection of animal faeces is on display in an exhibition, The Origin of the Faeces, which opens this weekend at Fusebox in Kingston upon Thames, south-west London.

Western lowland gorilla
Giant spiny stick insect

Clue: These dumps belonged to a former resident of London Zoo called Geetha.
Clue: These island dwellers are extinct in the wild but their faecal matter will hopefully splatter the ground once again when captive-bred animals are returned to the wild.
Clue: This stool’s owner might be found adhering to a twig.
Clue: This poo is drier than most, thanks to this creature’s talent for extracting water from everything it eats.
Clue: These carnivorous animals produce a number two only every five days or so.
Clue: You might encounter this ordure on an archipelago.
Clue: These kebab-like discharges were created by “a lovely lady” called Zaire who once lived at London Zoo.
Clue: This poo’s owner was extinct in the wild but has now returned, thanks to an ongoing captive breeding and reintroduction programme.
Clue: This pile of poo was created by a desert dweller that was driven to extinction in the wild. Reintroduction programmes are under way.
Clue: Are you still alert? Compare the crap to work out this one.
