Bone Material & Coprolite

Bone material is the preserved remains of dinosaur skeletons.

After a dinosaur died the body may have been buried in sediment. The inorganic parts of the bone, such as muscle and fat, would have decayed but the hard part such as calcium remained and it kept its shape. As water soaked into the bone other minerals penetrated in too. This made the bone more solid and harder. If the bone was then compressed it became a rock (Sedimentary rock). A fossil was formed.

Coprolite (which is fossil poo) are trace fossils as opposed to body fossils. They can still reveal much about prehistoric animals as they give evidence about the animals behaviour such as its diet.
