  1. I managed to get in a few hours before the rain hit at the North Sulphur River Texas. My buddy found a rare Globidens tooth. I found a high quality shark tooth and some coprolite.
  2. Cretaceous fish coprolite?

    Found this at Ladonia Fossil Park. Thought it was just a phosphate nodule but I've recently seen similar fossils labeled as fish coprolite. ID assistance would be appreciated, thank you for your time.
  3. Coprolite

  4. Everyone said NSR was dry and picked over but I hiked 9 hrs and found some cool stuff. My favorites are the Protostega costal bone with partial rib head preserved, the mosasaur bone with bite mark and the artifacts. I walked in tracks all day but the river is too large for someone to get everything and people miss quite a bit.
  5. Hi all, I was on the bank of a creek west of Festus, MO and I found this odd looking rock. It was partially buried in the mud. I didnt think anything of it until my wife said "that thing looks like a turd." I began researching coprolite and I'm curious what your thoughts are. I've always loved pre-historic history but my knowledge of fossils is extremely limited, to put it lightly. There is a crack that runs along the back in which there appears to be a quartz-like material. Any information or opinions would be much appreciated!
  6. Coprolite?

    Could this be coprolite? I found it near Mankato, MN.
  7. Egg or Coprolite or Something Else?

    I picked this up in a second hand store of all places her in south(Coastal) Alabama, so I don't know where it originally came from. I've never seen anything even similar around here. It's a decent size...about 4.5" x 2.5" x 3.75" (114mm x 63mm x 95mm) and seems heavy for it's size...21.6oz (614g). Whatever it is, it appears to have petrified bones or fragments (looks more like whole bones) inside it. It's asymmetrical in shape with a textured outer surface and some holes that show some of the inside. The coin in some of the pics is 1 inch(25mm) across and some of the photos were taken of the item wet to show color better. I have a lapidary saw and was thinking about cutting it open, but I'm afraid I'd ruin it if it was a fossil that was better left intact. I know I don't have much information to go on but any help identifying it greatly appreciated.
  8. Meg and the funky coprolites

    A few highlights from a quick trip to an eastern Virginia stream with @Gizmo. Found loads of coprolites. The shark coprolite in the upper left has peculiar pitting on the surface. The shark coprolite in the bottom right shows potential striations from the spiral working of the gut, pitting and the inner coil of the spiral. The large central coprolite doesn't look to be from a shark, does show some striations from possible gut lining or gut movement/emptying and lumpy little inclusions. The two larger teeth are from the boundary of the Eastover and Calvert Formations. The remainder of the fossils are likely from the Newport News Beds (Popes Creek Sands equivalent).
  9. Hi everyone. I found these which I think are coprolites and some pyritised wood. Possibly a bird bone as well as one piece is hollow. Thanks for the help!
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. @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:
  14. 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!
  15. Bones in coprolite

    This is from zephyrosaurus. Here is a photo of it. Thoughts ?
  16. 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.
  17. Cretaceous Coprolite

  18. 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.
  19. Coprolite??

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

    Coprolite?
  21. 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!!
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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.
