It’s completely natural. We all have to do it. What are we referring to? Poop! Even the dinosaurs had to poop.
This Fossilized Dino Poop is sure to give you loads of entertainment and is a great conversation starter. The specimen you could be holding in your hand is genuine Coprolite. The word Coprolite comes from the two Greek words, “Kopros” meaning dung, and “Lithos” meaning stone. Coprolite is the fossilized excrement of prehistoric animals found in the rock strata of the early Jurassic age, about 180 million years old. THAT’S RIGHT--180 million-year-old dinosaur dung!
The creatures that so willingly provided us this beautiful fossil form are believed by most paleontologists to have been the gentle giants, Brontosaurus. These creatures, now referred to as Apatosaurus, were as much as 80 feet in length and upwards of 30 tons. In keeping with their immense size, it is obvious that the dinosaur did poop on a grand scale. On display at the Museum of Earth and Planetary Science, University of Pittsburgh is a 192-pound patty of Coprolite. With their size in mind, there is no way we could provide you with the total experience, but this piece is definitely a bona fide piece of the action.
This multi-colored gemstone was found in the fossil-rich area along the Colorado-Utah border and derives its varied colors as the mineral-rich silica of this region leached into and replaced the original patty.
You can be the proud owner of a true piece of irreplaceable history, a gemological fossil form of undisputable antiquity and intrinsic value. Each piece has been closely examined and authenticated to assure you of receiving “The Real Poop.”
Own it with pride and display it with confidence. Give it as a birthday gift, as a stocking stuffer or as a great gag gift for your favorite co-worker!
