Happy Holidoo - the perfect gift for the gardener from the zoo

Dr. Doo’s work is piling up and he has been putting in double-doody just to make up this year’s batch of the season’s coveted holiday gift item Holidoo, Woodland Park Zoo Doo’s ever-popular compost.
These four-gallon buckets ($14.95 each) of hand-screened Holidoo make the perfect gift for the man or woman who has everything. This year, give your friends and loved ones what they really want: a bucket filled with well-rotted exotic animal poop; the gift that keeps on giving.
Holidoo is available only during the holiday season at the ZooStore. Hurry, supplies are limited.
Zoo Doo is a fully composted blend of animal manures mixed with straw bedding, grass, leaves, and wood chips from the grounds of Woodland Park Zoo. Which animals contribute to Zoo Doo? Elephants, of course, are the most generous, followed by ponies, hippos, zebras, giraffes, tapirs, and most other herbivores (plant eaters). Adding this rich, dark Zoo Doo to your soil will enhance water and nutrient retention, and will improve soil texture. It is completely organic and smells slightly sweet.
Holidoo is available at Woodland Park’s ZooStore during regular zoo hours, 9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. daily. (Zoo admission not required; just tell the gate attendant you want your holiday poop.)
The ZooStore is closed Christmas Day.

Holidoo, 4-gallon buckets: each.
