A gigantic "communal latrine" created at the dawn of the dinosaurs has been unearthed in Argentina.

Thousands of fossilised poos left by rhino-like megaherbivores were found clustered together, scientists say.

The 240-million-year-old site is the "world's oldest public toilet" and the first evidence that ancient reptiles shared collective dumping grounds.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

A funny postulation was brought up on another forum I frequent :

What if the fossilized tracks aren't about what was doing the business there but were to 'feed' ?

:lol:

Guys, more news from the excavation area!

They found a rock with crudely-written words, saying "ALL REPTILES MUST WASH CLAWS"

Evolution in action, people.
