    Mystery Ball

    Hi all, I found an odd, almost perfectly round ball in the desert. At first I thought it was an old ball bearing, but it's not metal. Maybe a coprolite? Or just an average rock that happens to be round... It's 15mm in diameter, found in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. I've found other fossils in the area including petrified wood and brachiopods. Thanks for any assistance, Tekk

    What is it

    Looks like a pile of rusty poop

    Is this a coprolite?

    Picked this up on the foreshore on Mappleton beach (Holderness Coast, East Yorkshire, United Kingdom). I thought it looked like a poo and wondered if it was indeed a coprolite?
  4. went hunting in the late cretaceous marine severn formation an found something weird. Its not ironstone, shell or bone and seems large for shrimp burrow. Could it be a coprolite?

    Possible Coprolite, maybe?

    Found this in some gravel near peace River - not sure if this is coprolite or not, wanted to get some opinions! Still very new on identifying most fossils.
  6. Hello dear forum members, among the collection of my late uncle there was a box of coal fossils, most of which are flat crumbly pieces of plant material. I left most of these in their protective wrappings for now. among the fragments on the bottom of the box I found some nodules, I think these caught my uncles eye and where collected on the same trip as the plant fossils. (from Germany, hard coal, not lignite, thats all I know). The nodules are heavy like ore minerals (pyrite comes to mind) There is one with an interesting texture. Maybe a coprolite?? @GeschWhat?

    Two unknowns

    Hi! I’ve had these two pieces for about 45 years. I figure it’s time for a better I.D.. I bought both of these in a little rock shop outside of rapid city. Both are supposed to be from s.d. The first piece is supposed to be dinosaur….

    Amber or coprolite or…?

    I thought I had seen the whole gamut of shapes and materials from the Lee Creek mine spoils, but this tiny (2cm) specimen has me stumped. It looks like a tiny brain with “folds” radiating away from a central seam. The “bottom” has a deeper seam, like the meeting of two halves of a walnut. I have found blocks of milky amber in North Carolina before, but nothing with any symmetry. if it’s a coprolite, what’s the seam? Could it be a little skull cast? I have been staring at this thing for a year. Please help. Frank

    Mazon Creek ID help

    I'm not quite comfortable with the possible IDs offered for these three fossils. Again, I sincerely thank anyone who chimes in with even a guess. A0003 -- Myalinella sp. or other bivalve, or something else? It has been suggested this is a Coprolite. C0004 -- Lycopod leaf upper end both halves? The part that looks like Coprolite has a "peanut shell" pattern in the hollow of the half on the right. C0085 -- Cyperites? I'm not convinced. Not comfortable with the taper. Perhaps a spine, either plant, arthropod or marine?

    New Bay Mystery

    Hi everyone. I went to Calvert Cliffs last week & found an interesting piece of bone. I have dozens of bone fragments from the Bay, but almost all of them are linear. This one is much more rounded. It is slightly bigger than a quarter. It might be too small to identify, but I thought it was worth sharing. It doesn't look turtle-y to me, but I guess that is a possibility.

    Possible coprolite?

    I've started finding these on my East Texas property recently. Pictures of two different rocks are attached. One of the forms in the rocks is crystallized. Picked up off the ground where there's iron ore and hematite. Your feedback is appreciated.
  12. Hi! I'm new here and new to the fossil world. My husband and myself love going to the beach and looking for interesting finds. 2 years ago we found this odd glittery nugget on a beach Dorset, UK and I simply took it as I found it special. Placed it in our collection box and forgot about it. It seems that it cracked in the meantime as it fully dried out and it became easier to crack open. It is quite heavy for its size.. I have no idea what it is and it made me very curious, as I recently read about coprolites. Could this one be a coprolite? I will try and attach a photo where you could see the

    Is this a fish coprolite?

    I bought this fish not to long ago and didn't really know what this thing next to the fish was. It was today that I thought maybe this is a fish coprolite. I would appreciate any help you can give me.


    Coprolite? found in Morrison formation near the Henry Mountains UT.

    possible coprolite

    found this tiny odd thing could this be the feces of a turtle poo or is it an odd concretion?

    Please help ID Coprolite?

    My kids or I found this rock in a stream near our house. It was in late cretaceous green marl. It seems coprolite shaped to me and seems to have impression fossils in it. Coprolite is a common find at the Rowan Fossil Park a few miles away in Sewell, NJ.

    Sharktooth Hill Coprolite?

    Hey Hi again, Here is another oddity that has shown up in the buckets of stuff I collected at Sharktooth hill. Not sure when it was found or which site on the Ernst quarries it was found at. I know it is a manganese concreation, but it has an unusual amount of bone pieces and a fish tooth mixed in on the surface and the sape is atypical of the other pieces of manganese that I have seen there. I was thinking it is a manganese replacement of a fish excrement. What do Y'All think? scale is an inch ruler. Thank Y'All!! Tony
