Here's something you never thought you needed to know! It turns out that no matter their size, mammals take an average of 12 seconds to go number two! Studies show this is from our long ago ancestors that had to worry about predators. That means elephants take about as long to use the toilet as mice, despite producing far larger sample sizes than mice. The new research also applies to humans, apparently- so there's literally no excuse for sitting on the toilet and playing Candy Crush for 15 minutes. Lead researcher Patricia Yang said, "If it's taking longer than 12 seconds, I'd say you should go see someone about it. But you can't count the newspaper time."
