Josh Chait, the spokesman for the auctioneer in Beverly Hills, said that the spectacular specimen was possibly the longest example of coprolite - fossilised dinosaur feces ever to be offered at auction, presented in four sections, each with a heavy black marble custom base.

He further added that the object had a superbly "even, pale brown-yellow colouring" and really detailed texture to the "botryoidal surface."

Meanwhile, selections of five stool-shaped specimens, possibly from a Miocene turtle around 23.03 to 5.332 million years old, are also for sale and are estimated to sell for 2,300 pounds to 3,500 pounds.
