  1. Coprolite???

    Hello Trying to figure out if this is coprolite! Just one of the fossils I found this last Weekend. I find most of my fossils ironically while metal detecting. I'm new to the forum and look forward to talking and sharing!
  2. Mecca Quarry Shale finds

    I had a great time hunting with ESCONI at the Starved Rock Clay Pit. It exposes the Pennsylvanian aged Francis Creek Shale and Mecca Quarry Shale. There were tons of concretions lying around, but we were told they are usually empty and rarely split well, so I didn't bother. I was really there for the black shale anyways. I found a bunch of bits which may prove to be more interesting after prep, but here are the more exposed finds of the day. I am not familiar with this fauna, so I was hoping to get help with IDs. #1) I found a few similar specimens. Best guess is coprolite. #2) Not sure if this is a fossil. Maybe coprolite or an arthropod carpace. Or just a mineral stain.
  3. A poo-tastic day

    @Gizmo and I had a chance to get to a couple of sites in eastern Virginia during the super dry conditions that we are having during August. We hit the water early, after a rare cooler night. The mist over the stream made navigation a little tougher, but the view was beautiful! I had a moment of clarity in understanding that a strong part of my love of fossil hunting is that it takes me to beautiful and wild out-of-the-way places. The water conditions made for some interesting finds out of the Calvert Formation. We did some bulk sampling for a museum project but mostly got in some surface collecting. Some highlights below. The coprolites really made my day! I came away with a bag full, but the big butt nugget in the first photo made me holler like I was stung when I first saw it. As usual, posting as-is due to a lack of time and interest in prepping at the moment. Coprolites of various types, an unusual axis and a nearly complete stringray barb A couple of interesting teeth
  4. @Gizmo and I had fun day on a stream in eastern Virginia in July. After emergency renovations on my home, I was in bad need of some restorative time in the field. For about two months, the only fossil hunting I got to do was vicariously through the TFF Trip Reports I've been so focused on coprolites and other aspects of collecting that I am behind on prepping teeth and bone. However, thought I'd share some finds as-is. Below are a few highlights: The larger tooth was found in situ in the Calver formation and has some pretty spectacular feeding damage, including a triangular bite mark and serration scrapes on the enamel: Some odd turtle bits, including a humerus: An ocean sunfish beak:
  5. Hey everyone, I am thinking of purchasing this dinosaur Coprolite but I want to make sure it is authentic first. The tag didn’t mention where it was from. Thanks!
  6. Bones in coprolite

    This is from zephyrosaurus. Here is a photo of it. Thoughts ?
  7. Golden coprolite two?

    In 2014 I saw a post which made me laugh from fossilized6s, it was a pyritized coprolite. In general I will not keep coprolites, however, this past year I am wondering if I have found some golden poo too. It feels very strange actually hoping it is not a worm or sea cucumber.
  8. Cretaceous Coprolite

  9. Fun morning Northeast Texas hike with a heat index of almost 110 degs by the time I left after lunch. The Tylosaur vert is worn but huge and weighs close to 2 lbs. The Tylosaur jaw section was almost buried as you can tell from the in situ pic. The artifacts were a nice little bonus. I waked in tracks for over half the day so I would love to see what the first guy found.
  10. Coprolite??

    Found in Bandera County, off of Pipe Creek. Texas.
  11. Possible Dinosaur Coprolite?

    Coprolite?
  12. I am a new member and definitely an amateur. Can anyone identify these photos ? I think possibly coprolite (found on creek behind my house )?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  13. Coprolite Questions

    Hello everyone, I am slowly trying to get the things in my collection more organized and here I have a piece of what was sold to me as coprolite from Madagascar, I was wondering if we can certainly call this a coprolite and not just a concretion, And if so what animal could it have come from or what the age is as that was not given along with the piece. Ruler is in inches. Thank you everyone.
  14. First poster and fresh account here, so hopefully I've done everything up to code! Found this while at the beach in washington. Thought it might be dinosaur poo, so brought it back. Though i'd love to be sure of what it is, if anything. It does seem to be a bit tacky when licked, but...cant say I've ever licked dino poo before so can't be certain what i'm licking for hah. Pictures had to be shrunk to all fit, then compiled them to compact further, so hopefully details still show. Front Side Back Side Side One (with ruler) Side Two (with ruler) Front Side In Sun
  15. Fun day on the North Sulphur River Texas. We saw some cool wildlife. Here's my finds. A nice mix of pleisosaur, mosasaur, enchodus, shark, turtle, horse, coprolite and artifacts.
  16. Coprolite

    Hello fellow Fossil friends. I have what I was told is Coprolite. I've seen so much fake ones at shows that I never know what's real or what's fake I'm member of a very well respected and major Fossil club and they said "as far as they know, it's real." I got conflicting answers. Every time I go in my fossil cabinet, I just can't tell if I picked up a dud or a genuine piece. The details are: Miocene epoch Wilkes fm Salmon Creek Washington Thank you for any help anyone can assist me with this
  17. Coprolite from Portugal

    Can this Dinosaur? coprolite from the Lourinha formation be identified?
  18. I had a fun hike at the North Sulphur River Texas yesterday. I figured it would be picked over but I found a pretty remote spot with my 4x4. The one sawfish tooth I found in a small creek a few days before. Everything else is from yesterday. It was a great day for Cretaceous coprolite (Poo). @GeschWhat The one coprolite is full of fish verts, bones and fins.
  19. Coprolite? Jacksonville, Florida

    Found this along with dozens of other fossils while hunting in Jacksonville. Hard as a rock and has that indistinguishable feces look. Let me know what you guys think!
  20. Dinosaur Bone and Coprolite ID?

    Hey all. So I just got some of that winter polar vortex stuff and now, there is snow about 2 feet high. I am now indoors and can not go out hunting fossils. So, I went to Michaels to look for fabrics to tie flies for fly fishing. Then I saw a "National Geographic Dig Kit with Genuine Fossils" It was on sale for 5$ and promised 3 real fossils so I just grabbed it and busted it out. After an hour of looking through online, Amazon and many others. I cannot figure out what bone or what coprolite this is. Its driving me crazy not being able to just slap a label on it. Can someone help me figure this out? Bone featured first Coprolite second
  21. Fish scales

    So i found a coprolite on a thin piece of shale at the Yorkshire Coast last year. Yesterday I noticed something on the other side. I assumed it was shells but on closer inspection i think it's a scattered fish? I'm guessing it's not worth sending it off to be prepped but it's quite interesting anyway. I wonder if the Coprolite has anything to do with the scales. Coprolite on the front Then turned over and fish remains on the back Anyone recognise the shape in the middle?
  22. Likely some have already seen this, a nice little video on coprolites, what we can learn from them and their significance. Being a post from me, the video of course covers the Two Medicine Formation, I know at least @GeschWhat will enjoy. https://www.facebook.com/scifrimacroscope/videos/986351528231150/
  23. Missouri marine fossil ID

    Hello, Thanks to all for identifying my first of three 'mystery' fossil finds in Jackson County, Missouri. This second item keeps appearing in the chert used for landscaping at a building several decades old. As before I've been unable to identify it by photos on the internet for comparison. Any idea what they may be? I didn't want to break one in half and disturb the integrity of the piece. Thanks again.
  24. I found this last year on the Yorkshire Coast. It was just sitting ontop of a large chunk of shale that had come down. Just prepped it today and it's come out pretty well. It's very fragile though. Will be from a ichthyosaur, plesiosaur or large fish!
