GEM UTAH DINOSAUR COPROLITE

"A coprolite is fossilized feces. Coprolites are classified as trace fossils
as opposed to body fossils, as they give evidence for the animal's behaviour
(in this case, diet) rather than morphology. The name is derived from the
Greek words (kopros, meaning "dung")and (lithos, meaning "stone").
They were first described by William Buckland in 1829. Prior to this they
were known as "fossil fir cones" and "bezoar stones". They serve a valuable
purpose in paleontology because they provide direct evidence of the
predation and diet of extinct organisms.[1] Coprolites may range in size
from a few millimetres to over 60 centimetres.Coprolites, distinct from
paleofaeces, are fossilized animal dung. Like other fossils, coprolites have
had much of their original composition replaced by mineral deposits
such as silicates and calcium carbonates.

COPROLITE
Two hundred million years ago
a dinosaur felt the urge to go.
He strained with all his might
and left this piece of coprolite.
Years after they had all died
it had slowly petrified.
Now that it has turned to rock
its really sad that it can't talk.
Oh what a story it could tell
but here it is . . .not even a smell.
