(http://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover/what-is-a-coprolite.html) Coprolite is a trace fossil
of feces which provides evidence for the animal's diet behavior instead of its physical structure.
Kumar & Kashkari (1987) described similar fossils from the Pin and Parahio valley sections of the Takche Formation as a trace fossil
The fossil tracks offer "some of the earliest known evidence for animal appendages and extend the earliest trace fossil
record of animals with appendages from the early Cambrian (485 million to 541 million years ago) to the late Ediacaran Period."
The studied trace fossil
assemblage of the fine quartz sands is characterized by a few horizontal structures with predominance of suspension-feeders or passive tubicolous carnivores among the trace makers and corresponds to the Skolithos to Cruziana ichnofacies.
Caption: Dinosaur tracks like this one, probably from a small ornithopod in Australia, are just one of many kinds of trace fossil
The sandstone/siltstone-claystone heteroliths that underlie and overlie such thick claystone beds are often characterized by sparse to abundant trace fossil
associations, dominantly Planolites isp., Thalassinoides isp., and Paleophycus isp., along with abundant plant fossils.

Associations in Paleosols: The Coprinisphaera Ichnofacies.
The interpretation by Mufiiz et al (2010) that the trace fossil
Trypanites ionasi was caused by an Osedax-likc animal is not supported by our evidence.
The associated monospecific, sporadic, simple burrowing, infaunal trace fossil
Skolithos Haldeman 1840, as well as the presence of the putative horseshoe crab trackway on the same bedding surface as a previously documented ancestral horseshoe crab, strongly suggests a marginal marine-brackish water origin for the strata.
Remarks: Dactylophycus is a relatively rare trace fossil
having been reported from Upper Ordovician shallow-water marine deposits in the Cincinnati area, Ohio (Miller and Dyer, 1878; Osgood, 1970), and Upper Cambrian?
rosea shells form distinct traces, comparable to the trace fossil
Caulostrepsis (Rodrigues et al.
