Is an animal an agent of chemical or mechanical weathering?

Animals can cause both mechanical and chemical weathering of rock. The actions of walking, scratching, clawing, digging, tunneling, and scurrying about are enough to cause the breaking of rock into smaller particles (mechanical weathering), and the secretions and waste of some will cause chemical weathering. Most weathering caused by animals, however, is mechanical.
