A little historical detail is mentioned about the discovery in 2010 of
a 2.2 m sauropod femur at the same site:

"On a d’abord cru que c’était un coprolite, un “caca fossile”. Quand
on a compris, c’était magique", se souvient Dominique Augier, du musée
d’Angoulême.

"We thought at first that it was a coprolite, a 'fossil caca.' When we
understood [what it was], it was magic," remembers Dominique Augier
from the Museum of Angoulême."
