What was found on the beach? - no photos! Where was the beach? Please include a scale in all photos (a ruler is best) and take photos from all angles.

It's almost certainly a cracked mud concretion - and to say it was a coprolite (fossil poo) you would need to see evidence of  plant / fish / animal remains within the object. I recently got a solin Pyrite specimen that looked exactly like a coprolite was because you couldn't see bones, scales etc it couldn't be called a coprolite! Seee pics below. DSCF3030.jpg
