Fish scales

Recommended Posts

LiamL

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?

It is hard to tell from the pictures, can you get clearer ones?

The item in the last photo could be an ammonite but again it is a little to blurred to be say for sure.

It’s so small so it’s hard to get a good picture, it almost reminds me of a crustation but i do think it’s a scattered fish.
