But this is burmite and there were no bats in the Cretaceous.

Sorry to muddy the water but I think it’s a poorly preserved fly or insect of some sort, they are kinda ‘furry’ because of all their little follicles. Being no expert I’ll also put forth the idea of a chrysalis or cocoon.

It looks very much like a small rodent fecal pellet to me, so mammal would be my best guess as well. I have seen similar in Dominican amber, but am unfamiliar with older Burmese amber. Very interesting!
