ABSTRACT
Coprolites are the fossilized droppings, or dung, of animals from long ago, such as dinosaurs. Dinosaur coprolites are not soft and smelly. Cracking or cutting open coprolites sometimes reveal what the dinosaur had recently eaten. Coprolites produced by large meat-eaters such as Tyrannosaurus contain bone from their prey.
