Turtle Coprolite

Receive ONE hand selected coprolite. Don't worry, the original material has been replaced by iron deposits. The only mess these leave behind is essentially iron oxide.


A coprolite is fossilized feces. The term coprolite comes from the Greek for "dung stone," kopros lithos. Coprolites are essentially very old poop bits that have been fossilized for a very long time. They do not smell, and mineral deposits such as calcium carbonates and silicates have replaced much of their original structure. Coprolites come in a variety of shapes and sizes and have been found on every continent on Earth. These special little time capsules provide direct links to prehistoric animal diets, behaviors, and environments.
