Horses and Dinosaur Feces on the Belleview Road

Old homestead on the Belleview Road, Teton County.

The Belleview Road runs from the front range to the town of Choteau (show-toe), Montana. It passes the famous "Egg Mountain" in the Two Medicine formation where curious egg shaped fossils were eventually proven to be actual dinosaur eggs in the nests!

Along the road right of way, there is an area with a rather large number of coprolites or fossilised dinosaur dung.

The brown blobs are the dino leavings

Here's more on coprolites.
