Details

These droppings were deposited 157 to 152 M.Y.A.during the Jurassic period. Coprolites are classed as trace fossils; they are particularly important to science because they often provide us with information regarding the diet of ancient organisms which in turn helps us interpret their mode of life. The original organic droppings have been replaced by agate stone which has preserved and helped retain the shape of the coprolites. Each coprolite is supplied with an information card
