Donation to the museum

In Wild World

When the player presents the dino droppings to Blathers at the museum in Wild World, Blathers will reply with the following dialogue.

"Hoo my, THIS is impressive! This fossil is in absolutely impeccable shape, wot wot! Dino droppings are a veritable treasure chest of information. For one thing, you can tell what the ancient little beastie ate! This was an[sic] herbivore, wot? As such, its... waste... will contain many small rocks... And why? Because this particular beast swallowed rocks with its plants! The rocks ground food up in its belly to ait with digestion... Amazing, wot? Oh! I'm terribly sorry. The very thought of belly pebbles gets me agitated!"

In City Folk

When the player shows Blathers the coprolite in City Folk, Blathers will reply with the following dialogue.

"Hoo, absolutely smashing! A fantastic find! These coprolites are treasure troves of information, eh wot? For example, there are little stones mixed in with the droppings of some herbivorous dinosaurs. Indeed, they would swallow plants and stones, which, mashing together in their stomachs, digested food. We can learn not just what they ate, but also HOW they ate! Hootie poo!"

In New Leaf

In New Leaf, a plaque by the display offers information about the fossil instead of Blathers.

"Fossilized dung might not sound too exciting, but coprolites are a treasure trove of information. If they contain seeds, bones, or scales, you can gain insight into the animal's natural diet. Dung doesn't easily turn into fossils, so they're considered quite precious and hard to come by."
