Imagine being a dinosaur. Roaring, fighting, eating... going to the toilet.

Wait, what?

Yep, dinosaurs needed the toilet just as much as other animals! And, just as dinosaur bones turned into fossils so did dinosaur droppings!

That's where George Frandsen steps in! He's the owner of the world's largest collection of prehistoric plops!

His collection contains 1,227 pieces of coprolite (that's what fossilised dino-muck is called) from 8 different countries and 15 different states in the USA!

George's advice for wannabe coprolite collectors is simply "Have passion". Hmm. Not sure about that George.
