VIPs (Very Important Poos)

Scroll down to see the most fascinating, scientifically astounding, and remarkable fossilized poos ever discovered! 

Here are the specs: 
Type: Coprolite with embedded fossilized shark tooth and bite mark
Location: Charleston, South Carolina, USA 
Age: Oligocene/Miocene (33 to 22 million years million years before the present) 
Dimensions: 51mm x 37mm (2” x 1.45”)
Weight: 80.3g (2.85oz) 

Coprolites with unique markings or identifiable inclusions (think modern-day peanuts and corn) are exceptionally rare. A single coprolite specimen with both unique identifiable markings and a spectacular recognizable inclusion were unknown to the world… until this wonderful fossilized poo was discoverd.

Mark Stitzer, a professional diver at Scuba Venture in Reading, PA, was hunting for shark teeth near Charleston, South Carolina, when he found an odd stone with an embedded fossilized shark tooth. Stitzer believed that he had found something special, and thought that it might be a coprolite. The piece had a .4” (1cm) starburst circular impression and a strange .65” (16.63mm) linear opening on the opposite side from the tooth.

Further examination determined that Stitzer’s hunch was correct. The specimen was a coprolite, and most likely came from a crocodilian. The embedded 1.3” (33.3mm) tooth belongs to a species of massive prehistoric shark named Carcharocles angustidens, which lived about 33 to 22 million years ago, during the Oligocene and Miocene epochs. Carcharocles angustidens teeth have triangular crowns and small, fully-serrated side cusps. Fossil remains of Carcharocles angustidens show that the shark could reach over 30 feet (9.14 meters) in length.

The linear opening on the coprolite evidences a series of evenly-spaced lines plunging down into the gap that match the serrations of the embedded tooth. These distinct impressions indicate that this opening is actually a bite mark left behind when the shark scavenged on the feces, and that the tooth was not eaten and then digested.

The starburst circular impression on the tooth is well-defined and evidences a series of small lines that stem from the center to the edge of the impression. The current hypothesis is that this unique marking was left by a ray’s dermal denticle—a placoid scale in cartilaginous fishes that provides protection against predators. Rays were very common during the time in which Carcharocles angustidens lived. We’re still not sure how the feces received the dermal denticle impression. It’s possible that the dermal denticle was digested and broke off from the feces after passing, or that the impression was made when it made contact with the feces outside of the host animal.

The unique hallmarks of this coprolite illustrate that a crocodilian pooped 33 to 22 million years ago, and that a Carcharocles angustidens shark took a bite out of that poop, but did not digest it. The shark left behind a tooth, as well as a bite mark impression in that poop. That poop also came into contact with a ray’s dermal denticle, either through digestion or after passing.

Of all the coprolites known from the fossil record, this is the only specimen recognized as preserving both the top and bottom sets of vertebrate bite mark impressions. There are less than 10 coprolites recognized as preserving some level of vertebrate bite mark impressions in the world.

The identity of the creature that produced this coprolite is somewhat of a mystery. However, it is consistent to those attributed to crocodilians. The bite marks are from an aquatic beast with a rounded jaw and sharp pointed teeth – possibly a gar fish, small shark, or a juvenile crocodilian.

Smallest poop record, worlds smallest poop, worlds smallest poop record, smallest poop ever, smallest dinosaur poop, Smallest coprolite, Termite Poop

Here are the specs: 
Type: Petrified incense cedar with embedded termite coprolites 
Location: Buellton, Santa Barbara County, California 
Age: Miocene (5 to 23 million years old) 
Whole Specimen Dimensions: 237.69mm by 136.52mm 
Coprolite Dimensions: < 1mm 
Whole Specimen Weight: 550g 


This amazing slice of petrified wood is filled with the smallest verifiable coprolites in existence.


Millions of years ago termites took refuge in this tree, ate the wood, and then crapped it out in their little burrows. This specific piece of wood was lucky enough to become petrified and so did the termite poops that were left behind.


Petrified wood is fairly common. However, petrified wood specimens with embedded termite coprolites are extremely rare.


It is also very rare that coprolites can be positively linked to the maker. These prehistoric coprolites are easily linked to termites by comparing their size, shape, and their environment to modern day termite poops, or termite frass.

The Biggest

"Precious" A True American Treasure

Here are the specs: 
Type: Coprolite 
Location: South Carolina, USA 
Age: Miocene (23.03 to 5.332 million years before the present) 
Dimensions: 195.90mm X 125.35mm or 7.71” X 4.93” (The specimen would be over 254mm or 10” inches long if it wasn’t bent.) 
Weight: 1.92kg (4lbs 3.5oz) 
Note: It is naturally glossy and was not dipped into water to look more "poopy". It smells and feels like a rock, not like a turd. This legendary fossil specimen is named "Precious". It is the largest true to original form coprolite of this variety in the world! 


Paleontologists believe Precious, and similar coprolites from the southeast USA were crapped by some type of ancient crocodilian species. We have attached a photo of a fresh poop from a 6-8 foot alligator for your review. As you can see, they are strikingly similar. Based on the feces to body size ratio of modern day crocodilians, Precious was created by a massive crocodilian – probably 20 feet or longer.


It is highly unlikely this specimen was created by a megalodon or some other variety of ancient shark as some fossil dealers would like you to believe. According to the very helpful people at Sea World “sharks do not have separate openings for products of the digestive and reproductive systems. The posterior opening of the gut is referred to as a cloaca. Generally speaking, sharks produce highly liquid fecal matter that tends to be mustard brown in color.”
