Cracked open a nodule found on the beach at Runswick bay and this unusual shaped matrix inside.

Any thoughts?

Hi Darren. I have enlarged your photos and THINK I can see evidence pf bits of shel / fish scales etc - can toy confirm this using a hand lens? If you can, then I'd go for a coprolite, probably marine reptile that size. Nice find - where's the beasty that pooped it though????

Hi Colin,

There is bits of shell in it, will try and get better pics tomorrow when theres natural light, would love to find whatever made it.

Thanks for that Colin, did wonder whether it was coprolite.

Regards
