I am stumped as to what critter made this pile on our land. [See attached pic - hopefully it works, I haven't tried attaching media before...]
They are tubular, about 1 to 1 1/2 inches long and about 3/8 inch in diameter. I don't think they could be skunk, raccoon or porcupine (which we have a lot of). All kinds of things run around here. I've not seen anything like this before.

I was wondering about the fibrous look. Definitely SOUNDS like something a porcupine could do. But I've had LOTS of porcupine to deal with around here. Up until now all porcupine scat I've found looks (more or less) like black licorice jelly beans. Well it starts out green then turns black. But their diet changes with the seasons, so maybe the scat does, too? This stuff is about three times longer than the porcupine "jelly beans" I usually find around here.
