"One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Treasure".

In this case it's actually three new species of frogs living off Elephant's dung in Sri Lanka. FYI 'Dung' is the proper term for shit.

Three different species of frogs have been discovered living in the dung of the Asian elephant in southeastern Sri Lanka. The discovery—the first time anyone has recorded frogs living in elephant droppings—has widespread conservation implications both for frogs and Asian elephants, which are in decline.
