Coprolite, meaning "dung stone" is fossilized animal waste. Coprolite does not smell bad, it has undergone a long fossilization process. Coprolites record the diet, feeding behavior, and habitat of prehistoric animals. Paleontologists can study the contents of Coprolite to see what one meal of an animal consisted of. For example, if the Coprolite consists of partially digested plant material such as leaves, seeds, bark, and roots, the animal in question was probably an herbivore or "plant-eater"; if the Coprolite contains bits of animal material such as crushed bits of bones, sinew, and claws, the animal in question was a carnivore or "meat-eater". Coprolite comes in many shapes and sizes depending on the animal it came from. Its color depends on the type of soil and minerals in which it was buried. Coprolites and other fossils are often found in exposed sedimentary rock in the badlands, weathered cliffs, roadcuts, etc.I normally ship within a day or less after receiving clear payment and I have a 14 day return policy.
