The coprolite is a stand-alone fossil that can be donated to the museum in Wild World, City Folk, New Leaf, New Horizons, and collected by Happy Home Handbook in Happy Home Designer. The fossil was changed from its descriptive name, dino droppings, when it was brought into City Folk.

Donation to the museum[]

In Wild World[]

When the player presents the dino droppings to Blathers at the museum in Wild World, Blathers will reply with the following dialogue.

"Hoo my, THIS is impressive! This fossil is in absolutely impeccable shape, wot wot! Dino droppings are a veritable treasure chest of information. For one thing, you can tell what the ancient little beastie ate! This was an[sic] herbivore, wot? As such, its... waste... will contain many small rocks... And why? Because this particular beast swallowed rocks with its plants! The rocks ground food up in its belly to aid with digestion... Amazing, wot? Oh! I'm terribly sorry. The very thought of belly pebbles gets me agitated!"

In City Folk[]

When the player shows Blathers the coprolite in City Folk, Blathers will reply with the following dialogue.

"Hoo, absolutely smashing! A fantastic find! These coprolites are treasure troves of information, eh wot? For example, there are little stones mixed in with the droppings of some herbivorous dinosaurs. Indeed, they would swallow plants and stones, which, mashing together in their stomachs, digested food. We can learn not just what they ate, but also HOW they ate! Hootie poo!"

In New Leaf[]

In New Leaf, a plaque by the display offers information about the fossil instead of Blathers.

"Fossilized dung might not sound too exciting, but coprolites are a treasure trove of information. If they contain seeds, bones, or scales, you can gain insight into the animal's natural diet. Dung doesn't easily turn into fossils, so they're considered quite precious and hard to come by."

In New Horizons[]

In New Horizons, after donating to the museum or selecting "Tell me about this!", Blathers will say:

"Coprolites are, in fact...ehm...bits of fossilized...feces. Hoo! Eww! It's true! It must be said they are also astonishing treasure troves of ancient information, eh wot! For example, the coprolite from certain plant-eating dinosaurs has been found to contain small pebbles. This tells us that these dinosaurs, like many modern birds, ate rocks to help grind the greens in their bellies. Indeed! Fossilized feces reveal not only what food the dinos ate, but how they digested it too. Hoo knew?!"

The coprolite is displayed in the second fossil room next to the dinosaur track and in front of the Tyrannosaurus rex.
