And the T. Rex bell goes "dung"!

*** Fossilized dropping show how T-rex ate

A fossilized dropping from a flesh-eating dinosaur has given
scientists new evidence about where, how and what the ferocious
Tyrannosaurus Rex ate about 65 million years ago. Up until now, most
scientists thought the mighty predator had torn apart its prey and
swallowed it in big chunks, but the discovery in Canada of a giant
chunk of feces containing very small bone fragments has shown that
the mighty creature chewed and crushed whatever it consumed. The
excrement, 17 inches long and 6 inches across, was found in southwest
Saskatchewan, 20 miles from the town of Eastend. It is twice as big
as any previous carnivore coprolite ever found. See
