"Compost is the ideal present for garden enthusiasts or that person who seems to have everything," the zoo said in a news release. "Get in on the steaming trend while supplies last."

It said its containers of Holidoo "consists of compost and bedding, featuring a rich blend of species feces contributed by the zoo's non-primate herbivores such as hippos, giraffes, mountain goats, tapirs and more."
