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 paleontology, as they provide direct evidence of whether the animal was a plant eating herbivore or a meat eating carnivore. Coprolites range in size from a few millimetres to well over 50 centimetres, and are surprisingly colourful and completely odourless!
