Yes, you’ve guessed it. It’s fossil poo! Or if you want to sound really clever you can call it a coprolite.
The poo of prehistoric animals, including dinosaurs, often survives as fossils… and can reveal all sorts of fascinating information.
If there are bone fragments, the animal was a meat-eater or carnivore.
If seeds, leaf fragments, pollen or bark are discovered inside this suggests the poo is from a plant-eater or herbivore.
Experts believe this to be the turd of a prehistoric reptile, although the specific species remains a mystery.

Victorian fossil collector Mary Anning, who lived at Lyme Regis in Dorset, was one of the first people to investigate coprolites… finding fossil fish bones and scales inside. She found more than sea shells on the sea shore didn’t she!
