Anti-aging baths Crocodile excrement was used in Ancient Greece and Rome for a variety of medicinal and beautifying purposes. They believed the reptile poop would dramatically slow down the aging process. So naturally, they filled their baths (fountains of youth?) with a mixture of crocodile feces and warmed mud and soaked for hours on end. Aristocrats were also known for making face masks out of the excrement. Even the Greek physician, Galen, noted that "ladies dedicated to luxury" preferred crocodile dung masks. While the "ick" factor is high on this one, at least no one was dying from it.
