Coprolite | Dinosaur Poo

Coprolites are fossilized faeces. Classified as trace fossils, they give evidence of the dinosaur’s behaviour (in this case, diet). They serve a valuable purpose in palaeontology because they provide direct evidence of the predation and diet of extinct organisms. Coprolites often contain undigested food fragments of prey animals.

When deposited in mineral rich sediments, the original remains of dinosaur faeces became petrified, resulting in coprolite (dinosaur poo).
