"This is the only case of megaherbavore latrine and it's the oldest," found fossilized, said study researcher Lucas Fiorelli...

Hm. One sample exists. That sample, therefore, is the oldest sample you have. Coincidentally, it's also the youngest. Weird, eh? Also the largest, smallest, tallest, shortest, roundest and most square.

Pooping all over prehistoric Argentina? Could've used some pampas.

LordJiro: So herds of large animals shiat a lot? This is news?


There are some modern animals that, instead of pooping where they feel like it, establish communal areas. These areas, and their scents, are a way for the herd to learn and remember who is a member of the herd, and establish territory.

So, if these ancient animals pooped in communal areas like this, it hints at similar modern behaviors.

The rest of TFA can't possibly be as interesting as the headline, which was provided for us here by Subby thus saving us all a click.

/what was that about them and Fark traffic again?

Fano: What of the shubs and sloars?


Many shubs and zulls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of a Sloar that day.

"Hey Dana! When we were dogs I saw you pooping so I pooped in the same place so the landlord would think there was something wrong with our toilets."
