I have a coprolite from Sihedang Town, Chaoyang City, Liaoning Province, China. The preparation was bad, and the coprolite itself came free of the matrix during shipping. Since it was a good sacrificial piece, I decided to dig around. I found this tooth, but unfortunately, I broke it before I was able to extract it or get a microscopic image. Any guesses? The coprolite contains no scales, but there are fish bones and vertebrae partially exposed. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
Four new specimens of Anchiornis huxleyi were recently recovered from the late Jurassic fossil beds of the Tiaojishan Formation in northeastern China. These new specimens are almost completely preserved with cranial and postcranial skeletons. Morphological features of Anchiornis huxleyi have implications for paravian evolution and provide insights into the relationships of major paravian lineages. This group of feathered dinosaurs are very closely related to birds. A technical papers but some beautiful images with great detail of these feathered dinosaurs. http://digitallibrary.amnh.org/handle/2246/6707 Plates from the paper
