Why did Bear Grylls eat poo?

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Record-breaking TV adventurer Bear Grylls has tested his survival skills in scorching deserts, dense jungles and freezing mountains, but now he's taking on a very different challenge.

Sonali went to grill Grylls about his latest mission and even found out what poo he prefers!?!

Don't worry, it's not something he does for fun it's a survival technique.

It's only as a last resort, but if you're stuck in the middle of nowhere with absolutely no other water source, you can drink the fluid from fresh animal dung!
