Details

Carboniferous fish coprolite preserved within a shale matrix.The fossil was collected near Bolton, Lancashire, UK. This shale slab can be pulled apart along its cleavage revealing both the actual coprolite and its imprint inside; it is an interesting educational piece. Coprolites are fossilised feces, they are classified as trace fossils because they only provide us with evidence of previous animal activity and existence. Although rarely can a producer of the coprolite be identified from the coprolite alone; they do still tell paleontologists important information regarding the diet of the animal. This coprolite is 3 cm in size and the shale slab in which it is encased is 10 x 11 cm. it is supplied in a plastic bag with an information label.
