Missing Mountain Goat

Too bad this is the only app for scat. It’s a very lame app. Missing the very common in Colorado Mtn Goat. All other info is very minimal with only one photo of each not even showing the differences by sex.

The app is not interactive. One should be able to upload a photo for ID. Also missing certain animals e.g. badger

Pretty good app

Good info and good pictures. Still didn't identify the scat in the yard though. Probably because diet variation can really change appearances. For instance, the black bears around here eat a lot of blackberries and apples. Pretty obvious to tell which is in season. So more pictures would be good. Would be nice if the app had info about gender differences too.

And if the devs had the budget, a social scat catalog would be great. Tagged and geotagged photos in Flickr or wherever with community identification, comments, ratings, etc would be a great way to create a larger knowledge base.

(By the way, I resisted many scatological puns and double entendres. It was tough, the temptation is strong. I'm sure you can fill in the blanks easily enough!)
