Some more info on the use of alligator/crocodile dung as contraceptive:
The practice dates back to 1850 B.C. from the Egyptian Kahun Medical Papyrus which contains some of the oldest recorded methods of birth control. The dung, along with some other mix-ins (what is this? Cold Stone Creamery?), was used as a suppository - a solid that was placed and melted in the vagina. The mixture was effective both serving as a physical barrier against sperm, and as a lethal agent against sperm due to the alteration of the pH level.
