Please take pictures from all sides (think cube) and include a scale.

How are you accrediting it to a dinosaur?

From what I can see it is not a coprolite.

Making the statement that itis dino is something that the seller can not prove one way or the other.

 

Let's see what @GeschWhat and @Carl think about it.

Can't tell from these photos. Could be but impossible to confidently verify.

Sorry so late checking in. I agree with Carl. Many sellers attribute various coprolites to dinosaurs. Only in very rare instances can coprolites be attributed actual dinosaurs. Usually the best we can do identify the prey preserved within them.

What are the other possibilities for this coprolite if it is from the lourinha formation?

@GeschWhat @Carl

Do the new pictures help?

Unfortunately, the photos are too small. They are sharp and well lit but would need to be huge.
