Object Description

Each with varying degrees of orange, black, grey and white, the fossilized dinosaur coprolite (dung) found in Moab, Utah, USA.

Object History

Moab, Utah, USA.

Object Literature

Dinosaur droppings have proved crucial for modern-day scientists. By examining these fossils in detail professionals can figure out if they were created by plant-eating, meat-eating, or omnivorous dinosaurs and even identify the type of animal or plant that the dinosaur had last consumed. For most coprolites, though, the exact identities of the dinosaurs that produced them will remain forever a mystery.

A fascinating and ever so slightly amusing group of fossils that make for fine conversation pieces. Just not with dinner.

Object Condition

In fine condition, now well polished for display and with a smooth finish, the colour and patination very apparent, and differing, in all three specimens.
