  1. 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!!
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. Coprolite from Portugal

    Can this Dinosaur? coprolite from the Lourinha formation be identified?
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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
  10. 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?
  11. 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/
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. shark coprolite?

    possible shark poo? the one on the right the larger of the two is worn and weathered have doubts on that one but the one on the left with the broken ends found some interesting things embedded in it will post then in next post. both appear to look wrapped or spiral bith from gravel load from Brazos River west of Houston Texas.
  15. Coprolite?

    Dear TFF members, Expert opinions please. Thank you, Ricardo
  16. More Permian Waurika Finds

    So, I have some more finds from the Permian matrix. A few coprolites, and some teeth. Scales and bones I may put up in another post. Thanks for looking... Squares are 5mm x 5mm Orthocanthus teeth? Miscellaneous teeth ...
  17. My first thought was coprolite

    This is from the Keefer Formation of the Clinton Group - Silurian. This site is a small iron strip pit in Duncansville, Blair County, Pennsylvania. When I first collected this I thought it might be a coprolite. Later a very experienced local fossil collector Id'ed it as a hematitic replacement of an orthoceras cephalapod. After looking at recent posts could it be something else or is it too lacking in detail to tell. I think its actually a cast not a replacement.
  18. Fossils?! Please help identify

    The files I have are too large, I’m hoping to be able to post more pictures in the thread. These items were found on the Jurassic coast in the uk. The item in this image is smooth and solid, albeit there are parts of it broken off, it was whole when we found it.
  19. Permian coprolite from Waurika

    Thanks to my friend @Jeffrey P ! He had given me some matrix that he collected at the Lower Permian Waurika Oklahoma site on his epic road trip this summer. I have spent some time breaking down the clay matrix, and going through the remaining bits to look for fossils. I've found a few teeth so far, but this was pretty cool. I was putting some hunks of matrix into different solutions to try to break down the clay, and came across this larger solid bit. Upon cleaning it, I realized it mus be a coprolite. It has many inclusions, Orthocanthus teeth, what appear to be bone bits, and fish scales. @Carl @GeschWhat may be interested in this. Enjoy! Matrix from the Lower Permian Wellington - Garbar Complex Note: each square on the background is 5mm by 5mm Coprolite is 2 cm long.
  20. Just sharing afew of my finds i've been working on today. Firstly a big, marine reptile or fish coprolite that i expected to pop out of the matrix. I'm not sure if it'll look better kept in, but it's pretty delicate. Secondly a lobster, claw or body part. Not sure which. Remember i'm still new to prepping, so everything is new to me.
  21. I've been poking around in some Wellington fm micro matrix, permian age, Jackson Co, OK & thought I found a small worn spiral shell, so I put it with the other items I had pulled out. Later, when looking at the items closer, I realized it wasn't a shell & that I had some slightly crappy matrix... literally. A small coprolite 6 mm in length by 4 mm wide & containing what I think are fish scales. So now I'm digging through the matrix again to see if there is any more. The pics are with a dino lite with no photo stacking software, so please bear with them. This is the one thing I never even considerd that I might find in micro matrix.
  22. Is this a coprolite?

    Hello! I'm relatively new to this forum (joined 12 minutes ago (haha)) and was following this thread. I attached three images of a rock I found in a creek in Western Pennsylvania. Any chance that it could be a coprolite? I thought it looked similar to the images I saw on this thread. If it's not, does anyone have any guesses?? Thanks!
  23. possible coprolite

    I know the odds are against me but this rock is odd so wondering if it could be a worn coprolite? I am not familiar with it so I just don't now...the weight feels off a bit and it is a bit tacky when wet but i just don't know how tacky it is supposed to be been wrong before. pics are of it dry will post pics of wet next...........
  24. Here I get frustrated again. This baby is about 1” x 1/2” x 1/8” This BETTER be coprolite. It even tastes like chicken..... I see grass and green (a few are scratches but most are not)
  25. Dinosaur coprolite?

    Hi - Please forgive me if I have violated many rules. I am not tech savvy. Nor was my deceased dad. We hunted many shark teeth, old bottles and arrowheads together. He always told me that the object in the attached pictures is dinosaur poop. Is it? Thanks for your help. If you are unable to tell I will gladly take more pictures. He grew up and hunted in Maryland so I assume that he found this in MD but I my be wrong as he loved fossil hunting and travelled extensively. Thanks a bunch!
