Have you gotten lost in an area with unfamiliar plants and nuts? Keeping an eye on the droppings of local animals can help you determine which of these nuts and berries are actually edible. You can also track animal waste to figure out where their most common foraging areas are. This provides you with two ways to survive: first, you can figure out which nuts to eat and secondly, you can find a good spot to hunt.
