The Coprolite (known as the Dino Droppings in Wild World) is a standalone fossil in the Animal Crossing series introduced in Animal Crossing: Wild World that appears in all subsequent games.

Donating to the museum[edit]

In Wild World[edit]

When donating to Blathers in Wild World, he will provide the following information about the fossil:

"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 beasty ate! This was an 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[edit]

The Coprolite in the museum in City Folk.

When donating to Blathers in City Folk, he will provide the following information about the fossil:

"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[edit]

After donating the fossil in New Leaf, its plaque in the museum will read:

"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[edit]

When donating to Blathers or selecting "Tell me about this!" in New Horizons, he will provide the following information about the fossil:

"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 can be found in the second room of the fossil exhibit in the museum.
