A fine example of dinosaur coprolite 32mm. One of Great Britain's most renowned and revered fossil collectors Mary Anning circa 1799 to 1847 first noticed stone pebbles in ichthyosaurs abdomens, once broken open she discovered fish bones of prey, this led William Buckland coining the term coprolite in 1829. Much can be learned from fossilised dung, the habitat and health of the producer, such information can help science construct a overall picture of the fauna and flora of the Cretaceous age. From these little time capsules then much can be derived.
