Headed out for a trip to Bayfront Park on Wednesday with my GirlFriend to see if any megs would come our way. Although we didn't find any megs we did find some cool things. One of the pictures shows something I cant identify, its fossilized for sure but I can't tell what it is. Maybe coprolite? Also found a sweet Dolphin tooth and shark vert.

I took the liberty of enlarging, cropping, and brightening your mystery item.

Boneheadz,

I like the dolphin/porpoise tooth with root. Great little find.

Could the mystery item be a fragment of a mammoth tooth? Going way out on a limb here...

Definitely not. Wrong formation. Looks like poop to me That or a piece of worn shell cast but my money is corprolite.

I don't know... It's pretty rough for any coprolite I've ever seen.

The lightened image seems to show some hyperostotic bony texture...
