Age: Morrison Formation, Jurassic Period
Location Found: Colorado, USA
Coprolite, meaning “Dung Stone”, is fossilised faeces (poo). Dinosaurs were no different to us today, in the fact that their bodies had to dispose of unwanted waste that had been created from eating food, just like us! Though, unfortunately for the dinosaurs, there were no ‘toilets’ available that they could use to flush away the evidence!! But that’s good news for us, as these fossilised remains serve an extremely valuable purpose in palaeontology, as they provide direct evidence of whether it was a plant eating herbivore or a meat-eating carnivore. Coprolites range in size from a few millimetres to well over 50 centimetres, and can be surprisingly colourful and completely odourless!SIMILAR TO SEEN: The image shows an example of the single specimen you will receive.
