The 100,000-year-old lumps of dung

2 posts in this topic

They look suspiciously fresh; but in fact these lumps of dung are around 100,000 years old.

They came from a giant ground sloth (Eremotherium rusconi), an ancient relative of modern tree sloths, armadillos and anteaters.

The grizzly bear-sized animals used foot-long claws to grasp tree limbs and scrape off bark for meals - as scientists know from studying their fossilised dung, or 'coprolites'.
