    dark brown-black
    about 1.5 in. long
    about .33 in. thick
    linear/oval kind of shape
    rounded ends, though there is a hint of a little 'point' at the tip of the rounded end, sorta like where the 'loaf' was 'pinched'
    deposited at night
    no signs of digging
    no footprints
    left in the sand in the shelter, outside the huge cage/fortress our ducks are in
    only one or two are left at a time

    looks to me like pcupine. but there are no spaces large enough for one to crawl through--i don't think. the ducks are noisy at night, so they are heard by.................whatever, though they are quite safe in the fortress.

    any guesses?
