In the year of Trump it seems fitting that the focus of our scientists falls to flatulence.
The story began when Daniella Rabaiotti, a PhD student at the Zoological Society of London, asked her followers, as you do, whether snakes fart and an ecologist at Auburn University in Alabama replied that they do indeed.
This prompted a storm of questioning about other animals capability to break wind under the ingenious hashtag #DoesItFart. Taking one for the team, Nicholas Caruso, a PhD candidate from University of Alabama has answered your stench ridden prayers with a thorough Google spreadsheet of animals which do and don't fart.
"I figured the best way to find out if a particular animal farts would be to ask the people who spend the most time with them," he told Gizmondo. "Which includes people who study them, or maybe people who keep them at home, or just happened to hear one fart."
TLDR? Birds no, cockroaches yes, spiders maybe. Frogs? Who knows. Millipedes? Obviously, mate.
These guys? Definitely.
