Brace yourself for a disturbing news story.

Archaeologists have discovered a 1,500-year-old prehistoric poo which contains a full snake skeleton.

Everything from the bones, scales to the fang of a snake were recovered from the fossilised poo.

Archaeologist Elanor Sonderman found the fossil in a coprolite in Texas, US. A coprolite is the name for a fossilised poo.

Studying fossilised poo provides a lot of information about the health of the person and details about the types of food ancient people ate.
