Man Enters Guinness World Records Book with Largest Collection of Fossilized Poop
36-year-old George Frandsen from Washington and his collection will be featured in the 2017 edition of the Guinness World Records book. His collection features 1,277 pieces of coprolite or fossilized poop.
George began collecting the ancient feces when he was a paleontology student in college. He's collected his 1,277 pieces of poop in 15 different states and 8 different countries. That's a lot of poop.
His prize piece weighs 4 pounds 3.5 ounces and is named, "Precious." The piece was found in South Carolina and is estimated to be 23.8–5.3 million years old.
George has some advice for those of you aiming to make it into the Guinness Record Book: “Have passion, lots of passion for whatever they’re doing. Mine is coprolite – fossilised faeces ... whatever your passion you should follow it.”
