Dinosaur Coprolite
by: Doug


Sorry I cannot confirm or deny your suspicions on this one. If as you say it has identifiable fragments of bone it could be coprolite.

I would say to check the location where you found it on a stratigraphy map. If it is dino coprolite it should be Jurassic or Cretaceous rock.
