Marine coprolites? Maybe?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I find a lot of what I believe to be marine fossils from the Cretaceous period  on my land up in Grayson County, North Texas, but I am not certain what kind of fossils they are. Here are pictures of what I think are coprolites? Thank you in advance for your help in identification.

Welcome to the Forum Kimberly. You have pieces of oysters and or bivalves in a Cretaceous rock that is sandstone or limestone. 

 

Take a look at this geology map to see if you can find out what formation they are from. Let us know what you find out.
