Could the left hand one be a large corprolite?
How old are the sediments?

hmmm, let's see...the first one is a vase suspended above a table, and the second one is a man's face.

How's that? ;)

They appear to be sand blows formed during an earthquake.

ok.. well, i find them interesting! the first one is a subterranean social wasp nest found within a palaeosol in overbank deposits (Late Oligocene-Miocene, Ebro Basin) and the second is a subterranean termite nest, note the coalesced chambers, in alluvial fan deposits (!) of Miocene sediments (again ebro basin)

ah, Espania, Wine, food and sleep  --- oops, this is Catalonia - got to work!!!!!!

Just a friendly suggestion. I could not read the scale on the rule. It would have been very helpful if you had given the scale in your text body. No problem, really, but I would have had a different train of thought if I had been given a scale.
