Ceratosaurus dinosaur defecating, illustration. This large theropod dinosaur lived during the Late Jurassic, 153-148 million years ago. It was a bipedal predator, using its teeth and hind claws to bring down its prey. It reached lengths of 6 to 7 metres. Shown here (red) are the large nasal horn and ridges in front of each eye. A coprolite is the fossilized feces of a prehistoric animal. As it is rare that a sample can be accurately related to a specific genus of animal, coprolites are usually classified according to their own taxonomy.
