Who dung it?

I live in South Texas and found poo in the lock hole for my backdoor! Theres a screen door behind this too so it can't be an animal from outside. I think something is in the wall above and the poo is falling down into this crevice? What animal feces is this? Help

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums.


This is a serious post..... right ?
Usually doorways are framed in. Can you see a possible gap where something could come out.

Really? That's so weird. I have a single story home so do you think they're in the attic and it's falling into this crevice? Any suggestions what to do? I'm so scared about mice because we have a newborn in the home

It actually looks like something deposited it there.

Could it be house lizard poop since it has a white tip?

I wish we could see it better and more in focus. It resembles bat droppings but I can't imagine how it got in there. Do a search for "bat droppings" or "bat guano" and see what you think.

Clean it out and see if it happens again. I'm betting it won't. If it it oes happen again send us a clearer picture and of the surrounding area including door frame.
