A mysterious black dropping

+6
Answered
I can’t identify what may be the rodent that is leaving this dropping.
I find this once a week on our living room/kitchen floor, just one dropping per week..very mysterious.
Black, hard, a perfect bullet like shape with one end having a flat cut.

    You may want to consider a Nanny Cam to see what is leaving the dropping.

    Perhaps have a talk with your local pest exterminator (NOT that I like anything being exterminated-at all) - they might be able to give you a clue. ie. what little animal might be leaving you an 'offering'. A little field mouse? But I guess it all depends where u live. Take a photo of the 'offering' and show it to them. Maybe they can help. Are you near a forested area? The USA has a wonderful wild life (as we do in Australia). Is this little visitor creating damage-ie chewing furniture, etc.? Maybe they just want to live in a lovely family home!!!!

    Do you have kids that are playing a joke in you? Only once a week? Maybe a sloth?

    Maybe a snipe left it!

    It looks like one of those nubs from a rubber mat - - mine come off once in awhile, but just 1 per week ? I'm with the answer who suggested someone is pranking you - - sorry.

    That does NOT appear to be from an animal.

    I agree with other posters..... Didn't look like an animal dropping.

    Thank you everyone for the answers. So.. I checked one place which never occurred to me to check before. It was my sandal which was shedding its old rubber spikes once a week......
