Mountain lion? Bear? Big, big dog? Almost 4 inches by an inch and a half, clearly segmented. The last picture is a cross section of a segment. Hard ring on the outside, gooshy inside. I didn't see animal remains, seeds, or anything else in it.

That doesn't look like any bear scat I've ever seen. It doesn't really look that mountain lion either, plus they usually disturb the ground around theirs. Raccoon perhaps, though what I find is more grainy looking.

That could be black bear poo, but I'm leaning a bit towards feral pig... I see that "scalloped" configuration frequently here in Texas.

Cougar poo looks just like house cat poo, only bigger.

Being as there is no hair or berries in it I doubt it is a bear or mountain lion.

A bigfoot-sized raccoon or a feral pig? Not sure which is scarier.

So maybe a big dog? Is dog scat ever segmented like that, with blunt ends, and that huge?

Feral pigs can get huge.

I'd call it about 90% that you had a solitary boar of about 200 lbs. pass through.

I've never seen "scalloped" dog poo, FWIW.
