Fossil Sea Turtle dung

The word “coprolite” comes from the Greek words Kopros Lithos, meaning “dung stone”. Basically coprolites are very old pieces of poop that have become fossilized over a very long time. Most coprolites are composed of calcium phosphates, silicates, and a small amount of organic matter. Coprolites come in a variety of shapes and sizes and they have been discovered on every continent on earth. These special little time capsules provide direct links to prehistoric animal diets, behaviors, and environments.
