Giant Coprolite in Dominican Amber


I have gone through the house on ID'ing this specimen.  For the longest time I thought it might be a Nematode, and earthworm, anything!  I now feel that this is one of the most unusual coprolites I have ever seen.  There are three parts to this.  The large part still looks like a worm, but I cannot discern any anatomical features.  Earthworms are segmented - this is not.  Nematodes have a specific anterior and posterior - this does not. The final guess is a coprolite.  I do not have the foggiest idea what animal this is from.  Your guess is better than mine.

This is a unique and special piece.
