The Oddment Emporium

A Cornucopia of Eclectic Delights

Did you know that there’s a branch of science devoted to the study of poop? Scatology is the study of feces or poop. Scientists can learn about the animal’s diet, health, DNA and behavior by studying their poop. The scientific word for poop that has been fossilized is “Coprolites.”

The oldest known human poop or “coprolite” in North America was discovered in Oregon’s Paisley Cave. The fossilized poop is about 14,000 years old and contains squirrel bones, bison hair, fish scales, sunflowers and protein from birds and dogs. This means that the person probably ate squirrel, bison, fish, sunflowers, birds and dogs.
