Coprolite, meaning “Dung Stone”, is fossilised faeces (poo). Fossilised remains serve an extremely valuable purpose in paleontology, as they give insight on the diet. Coprolites range in size from a few millimetres to well over 50 centimetres, and are surprisingly colourful and completely odourless!
