.50" Cretaceous Fossil Coprolite (Poop) - Montana

This is a highly unusual fossil from the Late Cretaceous, Hell Creek Formation of Montana. It's a coprolite (fossil poop). The coprolite measures .5" wide and we can only guess at what might have produced it. The Hell Creek Formation represents an environment near the shoreline of the Western Interior Seaway so you can get a mix of terrestrial fossils like dinosaurs along with fish, reptile, and amphibian fossils.

Comes with an acrylic display case.

Because of its age and sedimentary composition, the Hell Creek Formation has become one of the most paleontologically studied areas in the world. 158 genera of animals and 64 genera of plants are known from the formation and new discoveries are made frequently. In addition to Tyrannosaurs, Ceratopsids, and Hadrosaurs, the formation has yielded remains of amphibians, reptiles, lizards, snakes and turtles, fish and sharks, avian and non-avian dinosaurs, and mammals. The Hell Creek Formation gives the most complete understanding of the environment just before the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction.
