  • I am guessing that it is Flat Polypore Mushroom (Daedalopsis confragosa). That is a hard fungi that grows out of trees.

  • Look into your local Master Gardeners Society. Should be a great resource for gardening questions. Also try a university extension- contact your local college to speak with a horticulturist perhaps. LOL Love the idea of the fossilized dino poo!! Good Luck!! Re post if you find out what it is! That's unique for sure!!

  • Fungus. Can't give you the proper name but I remember finding them a lot when I was a kid and me and my friend would use them to make 'witches brew'.
