Columbia, SC (WLTX) -Planting season is right around the corner, and the animals from Riverbanks Zoo can help your spring flowers and summer garden.

Riverbanks Zoo and Garden is now accepting pre-orders for bulk loads of what they call their comPOOst, just in time for the growing season.

Riverbanks comPOOst is an all-natural composted zoo poo produced by the animal residents at the zoo. Seventy-five percent of it actually comes from Riverbanks' four female African elephants.

The bulk cost is $43 per load and they always sell out quickly.
