  1. I believe I got the material from someone on here years ago and I get a chance to go through some from time to time. This is Alafia River stuff from Lithia Florida. It had a note of Oligocene/Miocene for age. One of them is kind of hard to see but right beside the other and I suspect these are internal molds in a piece of coprolite.

    fossil or concretion

    I found this in eastern Montana in a wash bed. There were many concretion looks different, irregular surface on top and it is a continuous spiral from top to bottom. Almost looks like poop (coprolite) but it is heavy. How would you go about looking at its interior? Hammer? Scribe? I know people split some of them but I have neve done that.

    Coprolite

    From the album: Fossilhunter21's collection

    Fossil Type: Coprolite Location: Aurora, North Carolina
  4. Hi there! I’m coming back from a trip to Texas, and I’ve gone fossil hunting a few times while there (figured I might as well since I’m out of state). I’ve found a few ammonites and other Cretaceous fossils before, which I’ll get uploaded here later— however, I was hoping to see if anyone knew what this funny looking rock might be. I’m not great at identifying fossils yet, but we all agreed we thought it looked like some kind of coprolite. Found in Fossil Creek Park, Texas right by the creek. I’d appreciate any help :-)

    Coprolite, gastropod, or other?

    Found this in creek, Eagle Ford, at first thought it was part of gastropod but after closer inspection it started looking more like coprolite now I'm undecided so I will leave it up to the TFF court.

    Four Mazon Creek for ID

    Here's four more with which I need help identifying and/or confirmation of ID. Thank you. C0004 - You tell me and we'll both know! C0047 - Calamostachys? Bowmanites? Other? C0052 - Coprolite? No, it's not a fish. C0055 - Mariopteris? Neuropteris? Other?

    Shark coprolite

    From the album: Sharks

    A large shark coprolite (likely from the East Coast of the USA), over 3.5" long - probably from a megatoothed shark like C. megalodon. There's a bore/burrow on the left side in this image.

    Not a coprolite?

    Hello, I found this fossil (at least I think that's what it is) in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates). It is Miocene in age. I showed it to Dr. Mark Beech, the head of archaeology of the region, and he wasn't quite sure, but he told me he doesn't think it's coprolite. Hope you can make sense of this for me!

    coprolite or flint?

    Found this in gravel - at least it has some impressions on it but it looks like it could be coprolite...

    Coprolites

    I’ve moved up to the higher levels of my property where I’m finding bones and coprolites. Still hoping for a big score of a full skull.

    Coprolite lovers, Help!

    Serious, experienced replies, please! This 0.5 cm long object is attached to a broken coprolite from the Eocene/Oligocene of NW Nebraska. Trying hard to figure it out. Wrong twexture for a tooth and it doesn't look like a seed, either. I have a guess, but right now a guess is all I have. Any coprolite specialists out there? I know the pictures could be better, but I don't have a microscope out here in the field.

    Dino poop?

    I found this among a large amount of Ceratopsian bone. Is it what I think it is or a just a coincidence of nature? Judith River Formation on the Milk River.
  13. I recently went on two fossil hunting trips to Cretaceous sediments of Eastern North Carolina, the second of which was earlier today. Today’s trip to the Bladen formation yielded baculites ammonites, some worn mosasaur teeth, the nicest goblin shark teeth I’ve personally collected, some fish mouth plates, turtle shell fragments, and some other goodies. My first trip a couple weeks ago was to Tar Heel formation sediments and I collected several small mosasaur teeth, a mosasaur vertebra, a piece of petrified lignite, lots of goblin and crow shark teeth, lots of turtle shell, a very wor
  14. Earlier this month I got the opportunity to return to one of my Permian fossil sites that I haven't visited since around April. The site is located in McClain County in central Oklahoma south of OKC. According to a geological map the majority of the area consists of the Wellington Formation, however the bottom of the exposed area is shown to be apart of the Stillwater Formation. According to scientific publications the only fossil producing layer is mentioned as belonging to the Wolfcamp (296.4 to 268 Ma) particularly the Gearyan strata. I've spent multiple trips earlier this year searching th

    Colorado coprolite?

    Hello I'm Andy. I've been on the collecting scene for about a year. I live in the foothills on the Eastern face of pikes peak. I have found many baculites and some ammonite pieces and all my treasures have been found while walking my great dane. This one is beyond what I've read over the last few months. And help you can give me is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Coprolite?

    I've spent a lot of time looking at dinosaur doo doo pics and research. I still don't know so I defer.. Found by Lake Lavon, Collin County, Texas at a site recently churned for development.

    Coprolite?

    Again, found by the river...this one could have come from along the canal but that's connected to the river. Nebraska panhandle. Pooh? I see corn and peanuts, lol.

    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
  22. 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.
