  • "A British graduate student was left 'reeling' after his university threw out a bag of lizard excrement he had spent seven years collecting in the rainforests of the Philippines, he said on Friday. Daniel Bennett had collected 35 kilograms of faeces of the rare butaan lizard during field work abroad, as part of his PhD research at Leeds University in northern England.

    But he was devastated on returning from the Philippines to find that the bag, which was unmarked, had been thrown out with the rubbish in a clear-out of his laboratory. 'To some people it might have been just a bag of lizard shit,' he told Times Higher Education, which ran the story under the headline 'Oh crap, there goes my work.' 'But to me it represented seven years of painstaking work searching the rainforest with a team of reformed poachers to find the faeces of one of the world's largest, rarest and most mysterious lizards.'"
