    Coprolite ID please

    No location unfortunately as I bought this at an auction for my toddler (who loves dinosaurs and also poop). I am dying to know what creature plopped this deuce so my son and I can learn more about it. I know some of you on here are experts on ancient excrement, thanks for your help!! Measures: 4.5” x 1.5” Weight: 8.5 oz

    Killer Poo

    Walked and walked and walked til I couldn’t to walk any more. Really thought after the recent rains that I would find more but I am very pleased with this absolutely perfect and beautiful coprolite. Also found a nice mosy tooth. Rest were just scraps I gave to kids on the way out. IMG_7369.MOV

    Marine Predator Coprolite

    From the album: Oxford Clay Fauna

    Coprolite Jurassic, Callovian Oxford Clay, Peterborough Member Hampton Lakes, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, UK A coprolite from an indeterminate marine predator, showing inclusions of nacre, partially digested bone, and fish scales of Pholidophorus? sp. (an indeterminate pholidophorid) and Coccolepis sp. (an enigmantic coccolepid).

    Concretion or coprolite?

    Found in Eagle Ford creek, funky looking whatever it is. Because of the fine grains and indent on the end I started thinking maybe this wasn't just a concretion, but I'll leave it up to the experts.

    Turtle coprolite?

    This is from mix of Eagle Ford and Alluvium, had it for awhile but just ran across pictures of turtle coprolite and thought it fit, right size, shape and colors I've seen. Also weighs light. Knowing my luck it's geological but that's ok it's very interesting. I snuck in another one I suspect is coprolite

    Coprolite ?

    Found in gravel from the Brazos River ....I got it wet and it was a bit more tacky than other stones that given its odd shape and texture makes me think it may be Coprolite?... well one can hope right?...if its not that then it is some tacky poop looking concretion or normal stone....if it is nothing its another pebble for my garden of look like, could have been but nots.

    Concretion or coprolite?

    Picked this up in creek that is mostly Eagle Ford but is downstream from where it cuts through QAL. Pretty sure it's a concretion but given it has a few inclusions want to make sure it's not coprolite, and yes I read the post on the subject but still left me unsure so best to leave it up to the experts!
  9. Fun trip to the North Sulphur River Texas. I really like the giant coprolite and Holmesina armadillo scute. @GeschWhat
  10. Stopped by a new home construction site, a tad NE of DFW airport, Eagle Ford Kef, so far just levelled with road cuts. Stumbled upon this shark tooth and I lack the experience to ID it. Next up the rock which is what I think is fish coprolite, it weighs nothing, doesn't look like any shark coprolite I've seen, and there were no other rocks that looked even close. Lastly, and I might be way off, I'm pretty sure is shark related, my first impression was it looked like a puddle of barf. These were just the biggest peices the rest was shattered. I know sharks vomit so that was just a thought , i

    Coprolite Identification

    Rather than writing information about coprolite identification on multiple threads, I thought I would post information about coprolite identification here so it can be referenced in ID threads (I'm getting lazy, I know). I was also thinking it might be fun for others to post coprolites in their own collections so others can use them for comparison. So here we go: IDENTIFYING COPROLITES: Not all rocks that look like poop have a fecal origin. Here are a few things to consider when trying to make this determination: 1. Location, Location, Location – If you haven’t guessed

    Coprolite animal ID

    I unfortunately have no location on this road pie as it came in an auction lot. Is it coprolite? And if so is there any indication as to what animal might have excreted it? Thank you!
  13. After my last NSR trip, and finding a mosasaur vert, I felt like I was getting a better eye for NRS fossils. I have always heard the feeder creeks can be productive however I have searched in several never found anything in them. Now that I had more confidence I went to a more remote bridge and went for the first feeder creek I could find. It turned out to be decently productive with several more verts, none in particularly great condition though, and a jaw section. I think there is a coprolite in there too, pictures 14 and 15 maybe? I think my favorite find of all was the artifact though.
  14. I had a great half day at the North Sulphur River Texas before the rain got me. I found a mix of everything to include artifacts, Xiphactinus vert, swordfish tooth, coprolite, turtle shell, partially rooted mosasaur tooth, killer mosasaur paddle bone, Enchodus jaws, shark teeth and old toys. My buddy racked up on mosasaur verts.
  15. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale I have found fish coprolites before but I am not sure what this is as I am not an expert in coprolite identification. It is possible its something else entirely or simply nothing. https://postimg.cc/svXtnbQT https://postimg.cc/MnfgwRYR https://postimg.cc/2q4JbDMS https://postimg.cc/dZ0SxT1h

    Is this a coprolite

    I found this when my grandfather passed away. Can anyone help identify this
  19. Everyone said NSR was dry and picked over but I hiked 9 hrs and found some cool stuff. My favorites are the Protostega costal bone with partial rib head preserved, the mosasaur bone with bite mark and the artifacts. I walked in tracks all day but the river is too large for someone to get everything and people miss quite a bit.
  20. This fossil comes from Richards Spur and it is Permian. I think it's a coprolite with a bone bitten by the predator that the coprolite belongs to, but I'm not very sure. What do you think about it? Thank you.
  21. Good day. In this topic, I will display fossils that I found interesting. Some of them were found by me, but most of them were obtained by exchange or bought. I have already exhibited this coprolite in another topic, but I want to duplicate it here. This is my personal find, and it is interesting because on its surface many scales of the Senomanian fish have been preserved.

    Concretion #16: 4.1 cm Fish Coprolite

    4.1cm Fish coprolite This particular section has a little bit of Cartilage from what I presume it had consumed millions of years ago Both sides of the Concretion/Nodule
