“A density of 94 poos per square metre was recorded by the researchers”
Via the BBC: Giant prehistoric toilet unearthed. The discovery is quite significant, but it is explained in ways that perhaps only the BBC can manage:
Thousands of fossilised poos left by rhino-like megaherbivores were found clustered together, scientists say.
A density of 94 poos per square metre was recorded by the researchers. And the excrement was spread across patches 900 square metres in size.
My childish amusement is, no doubt, amplified by the fact that I can’t help but hear a very proper British accent in my head as I read the article.
