    Coprolite ???

    Hi Everyone! I'm new here. My brother has had this in his collection since he found it in the early 1960's. Can anyone help me identify it? Found somewhere in Wyoming - probably in the Big Horn Basin area.

    Weird Coprolite ID

    So, I was going through my fossils from my last trip to Kemmerer Wyoming. One of them accidentally split, revealing this. It looks like a kind of Coprolite, but I’m not sure. It’s got scales in it, but it’s too flat to be regular Coprolite. I suspect it is stingray Coprolite, as the people there told us to watch out for it, because they have been finding a lot. Can someone help me ID this? Jared

    Coprolite?

    I have just found this little coprolite? yesterday. This is the second time a coprolite-like fossil has turned up in the shale from the Leighton Fm. I am not really sure on this one, though, due to the presence of crinoid stems. The fossil(s) are from the Leighton Formation, Maine; which is Pridoli, Silurian. The main reason I think it is a coprolite is because of its situation in the shale. The rest of the shale around it is relatively uniform, with no fossils whatsoever. The fossils present in it are one crinoid stem, quite a few ostracods, a very small Orbiculoidea brachiopod,

    A few interesting finds

    Hello everyone, First time posting here so sorry if I mess this up or offend anyone for a newbie asking for some ID help. On a recent trip to some of our Northern New Jersey spots, I’ve come across two things I have never found before and one vertebrae that I was hoping someone could maybe point me in a direction towards. All from Holmdel area. Images 1 and 2 is possibly coprolite? Has small “shell like” crust to it in some spots. 3,4,5,6,7,8, and 9 is a small tooth in a piece of jaw bone or a claw piece possibly? Last four is the vert found. Roug
  5. I picked this little nugget up quite a few years ago, during my early infatuation with coprolites. All I know about it is that it was found near Price, Utah. I have siderite "formations" from around the world. This is the only one I've seen that looks like it has an inclusion (or should I say the cast of an inclusion). There has long been a debate as to whether siderite rocks such as these are coprolites, casts of voids (fecal and otherwise, or iron-rich mud extrusions (what I like to call "Earth poop"). My questions are: 1. Does anyone happen to recognize what formation this might

    Coprolite

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    My first definitive coprolite from Wyoming, could belong to any assortment of animals so I won't slap a label on it to avoid being inaccurate.

    Fish Coprolite?

    I have read in multiple papers that there are three theories to the preservation of thelodont scales. First, a rapid burial when the thelodonts have died under still circumstances, e. g., in a lagoon or other still body of water. This results in associated scales. Second, the thelodonts die and disintegrate in the open ocean, leaving behind disassociated scales. Third, the thelodonts were eaten, and deposited as coprolites. Now, I have just found an array of thelodont scales in a single small spot. The stone they are preserved in is a lighter color than the rest of the shale. The

    Need ID help with today's creek finds

    A few curious things from Cretaceous Eagle Ford/QAL mix I can't quite put my finger on, first one looks like burrow but up close it's very different from other burrows I've found. Next I'm wondering if it's coprolite, then possibly rugose? Last one i have no clue just didn't think it looked geological. Forgot the end shot of burrow so added it at end.
  9. I purchased this beautiful pile of poo pellets, and the matrix contained this little hitchhiker. Since I know next to nothing about trilobites, I was hoping for an assist. He dates from the Middle Ordivician (Llandeilian), and was found in the Traveusot Group (Angers), in La Meignanne, Maine-et-Loire, France. I don't know if the second photo is more of Jaques or just another trilo-bit. Thanks for indulging me. Yeah, I'm digressing.....
  10. I found this on a sandbar along the Kansas River in Shawnee, KS. I found a collection of aquatic fossils on the sandbar that look like they had been washed up. I don't know what this is, it appears to have small bone or cartilage fragments imbedded in it (I'll take some close up pictures and upload them if needed). The top face has irregular divots while the back side is more smooth. The whole piece is hard and heavy (best I can tell, it's has a 7 or so on the hardness scale). I haven't really seen anything like this before.
  11. Edit: This is a duplicate don't reply I found this on a sandbar along the Kansas River in Shawnee, KS. I’m not sure exactly what it is, it appears to have small bone or cartilage fragments imbedded inside. The top face has irregular divots while the bottom side is smooth.

    Mazon Creek id help

    Hi everyone, I was going through some more of my Mazon creek material and could use some help with ids I have some ideas what these might be, but I'm still pretty inexperienced and would really appreciate some help. Thank you in advance!

    Possible coprolite? (Big Brook, NJ)

    Found this yesterday at Big Brook in New Jersey. Trying to figure out if it's just a rock with an interesting texture or a fossil. About 1×0.5×0.5 cm

    Coprolite ID please

    No location unfortunately as I bought this at an auction for my toddler (who loves dinosaurs and also poop). I am dying to know what creature plopped this deuce so my son and I can learn more about it. I know some of you on here are experts on ancient excrement, thanks for your help!! Measures: 4.5” x 1.5” Weight: 8.5 oz

    Killer Poo

    Walked and walked and walked til I couldn’t to walk any more. Really thought after the recent rains that I would find more but I am very pleased with this absolutely perfect and beautiful coprolite. Also found a nice mosy tooth. Rest were just scraps I gave to kids on the way out. IMG_7369.MOV

    Marine Predator Coprolite

    From the album: Oxford Clay Fauna

    Coprolite Jurassic, Callovian Oxford Clay, Peterborough Member Hampton Lakes, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, UK A coprolite from an indeterminate marine predator, showing inclusions of nacre, partially digested bone, and fish scales of Pholidophorus? sp. (an indeterminate pholidophorid) and Coccolepis sp. (an enigmantic coccolepid).

    Concretion or coprolite?

    Found in Eagle Ford creek, funky looking whatever it is. Because of the fine grains and indent on the end I started thinking maybe this wasn't just a concretion, but I'll leave it up to the experts.

    Turtle coprolite?

    This is from mix of Eagle Ford and Alluvium, had it for awhile but just ran across pictures of turtle coprolite and thought it fit, right size, shape and colors I've seen. Also weighs light. Knowing my luck it's geological but that's ok it's very interesting. I snuck in another one I suspect is coprolite

    Coprolite ?

    Found in gravel from the Brazos River ....I got it wet and it was a bit more tacky than other stones that given its odd shape and texture makes me think it may be Coprolite?... well one can hope right?...if its not that then it is some tacky poop looking concretion or normal stone....if it is nothing its another pebble for my garden of look like, could have been but nots.
  21. Lone Hunter

    Concretion or coprolite?

    Picked this up in creek that is mostly Eagle Ford but is downstream from where it cuts through QAL. Pretty sure it's a concretion but given it has a few inclusions want to make sure it's not coprolite, and yes I read the post on the subject but still left me unsure so best to leave it up to the experts!
  22. Fun trip to the North Sulphur River Texas. I really like the giant coprolite and Holmesina armadillo scute. @GeschWhat
  23. Stopped by a new home construction site, a tad NE of DFW airport, Eagle Ford Kef, so far just levelled with road cuts. Stumbled upon this shark tooth and I lack the experience to ID it. Next up the rock which is what I think is fish coprolite, it weighs nothing, doesn't look like any shark coprolite I've seen, and there were no other rocks that looked even close. Lastly, and I might be way off, I'm pretty sure is shark related, my first impression was it looked like a puddle of barf. These were just the biggest peices the rest was shattered. I know sharks vomit so that was just a thought , i
