    Baby duck in egg?

    Hello, I found this in my backyard and was really studying it the other day when I noticed these "claw" looking formations on the stone. I realized after some time the formations weren't claws but "wet" feathers. Then I found the head on the bird and noticed one of its legs and a webbed foot up over it's head. On the other side is the yellow substance that I think is the yolk of the egg, either cracked and running out or is still "inside". The first picture is the head of the baby bird maybe a duckling, with it's leg and foot up over it's head. The second picture is the backside of the e

    Dinosaur Egg

    We found a few dinosaur eggs located in Utah. Not quite sure on exactly what they were laid by or even if they are fossilized eggs.

    Found possible fossilized egg, ID unknown

    Hello! Recently I was digging in my garden and not far below the surface I discovered what I initially thought was a rock. Upon observation, I noticed several characteristics that were not something seen in Rocks but more so in fossilized eggs. I know that it cannot be a dinosaur egg because I am in Florida. My first theory was that it was a reptile egg because you can see the porous-like surface found in reptile eggs but it most certainly could be a bird egg of some type as well. Another theory was that it possibly was a fossilized turtle/carpace. It is slightly bigger than a ping pong bal

    Not sure if egg or not...

    Hello all, I joined because I've always been fascinated by fossils, but also because I figured this might be a good place to ask this question: could this be a fossilized egg? It called to me to pick it up out of millions of rocks and stones on a beach in Brighton, UK over 25 years ago, and I just unearthed it again from a box of curios - I've always wondered what it may be, as it's got a surface I've never come across in my travels. I do have access to a fossil park I can take it to have analyzed, but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas. Fossil, or simply a neat rock? It is about 3" long an

    Please Help ID Egg Fossil

    I purchased a box of rocks and minerals at an estate sale. I noticed the translucent texture of this "rock" and have never seen such an appearance of a rock. While studying the fossil it appears to be some sort of egg fossil. I have no prior experience with fossils other than buying some at museums as a child. But this fossil is fascinating to me! I humbly ask for opinions as to what type of fossil I have. Thank you all in advance for sharing!

    I've now had it looked at by a geologist and the park paleontologist at "The Falls of the Ohio". The paleontologist was intrigued yet baffled by it. As far as the record books are concerned there were not supposed to be dinosaurs in Indiana. But I know for a fact that Tell City man in southwest Indiana found one in a creek. He had it authenticated. Maybe there never were dinosaurs in this area? But I can tell you who was. Mound builders. A friend of mine had a theory as to how the came to be here. That sometime, somewhere, native peoples found them and carried them in their travels. At some p

    Possible Egg?

    I found this peculiar white rock, I was hoping someone might tell me if it's an egg or not. I have more photos. The rock is hard, it's not chalky. I found it near water.

    Just Found These

    As the title states, I just found these two items. I was turkey hunting with my wife and happened to see the "tooth" on the ground as we walked up to the truck. There was a fossilized clam about palm size and one about the size of my thumb nail in the same spot. Then later in the day I was walking back to the truck to get my jacket, cutting across a terraced field. The field was last worked about 20 years ago. I think it's a petrified egg. It's also one of the highest points on the property so it didn't come from a river unless someone carried it there many many years ago.

    Fossilized reptile Egg?

    Hi, I grew up in Nebraska and somewhere or another I found this stone. We used to find lots of Mastodon Teeth, Camel teeth etc. in the Platte River Valley. And I know Nebraska was an ocean a long long time ago so occasionally we'd come across Megalodon teeth as well. I found this though. The backside is very smooth and round, it has what looks to be a well defined yolk like interior and what looks to my untrained eye to be a cross section of a small skull/cranium with beak like end. I would like to know if this is what I think it is.

    Is this really a fossilized Egg?

    Hello everyone, quite a few years ago, I found the following "fossil?" but can´t remember if i found it in the Alps or at the Baltic sea, but probably at the second one. For me it looked like a fossilized Egg, so I kept it. For me the egg shell is clearly visible (also on the back) and also the "egg yolk" on the top. I couldn´t find anything similar on the Internet. Each space on the Background is 0.5 * 0.5 cm and the pictures show the object from above and the back. Can anyone help me identify it, should it really be an egg, age and animal would really interest me? Is it even a fossil or
  12. I found this in the valley in a rock pile from an old rock avalanche in West Vail, CO. I've given it to my son's 4th grade class to figure out as well. Thanks for any leads.
  13. Greetings! We found this fossilized egg on the banks of the clay cliffs in Maryland. We frequently find fossilized shark teeth, stingray jaws, whale vertebrae, and megalodon teeth on the same banks. It was a round/oval shape with a crack in the top and we proceeded to break it open (not the best idea now!). You can clearly see the yolk and egg layers. We would love any help identifying it! Thank you!
  14. Can anyone provide any input about this fossil. Appears to be some kind of egg, the size of a standard business card. Found by the south east coast of NC.

    Fossilized Egg ?

    I found this on a golf course in MA. It is so symmetrical and resembles other seemingly legitimate eggs here. The continuity of the surface and lack of "inclusions" make it hard for me to think it's a rock. Any thoughts ? I can send better pictures to those who may care..... Thanks. -Bill
  16. Hi i recently found this rock out n the country by an old timers porch whom gave this fossil to me it has rough putting pours surface parts, its a hatched uncollapsed egg. Very cool 100% legit lucky find.... but what is it?! And i hope it finds a home sometime soon

    Is this a fossilized egg?

    First, I apologist if my English grammar has problems because I'm not native. I found it in Binh Thuan, Vietnam which looks very much like a egg fossil.

    is this a fossilized egg?

    Hi, I found this at Pelican lake, MN about 35 years ago. Is it possibly a fossilized egg?

    Possible Egg.?.

    Hello All, I am an amatuer Fossil Hound. A friend turned me on to this exciting and sometimes very rewarding activity. Living in N.E. Michigan along Lake Huron with a constantly changing rocky shoreline, there is always the prospect of something new tumbling ashore to find. Last week I decided to shift my searching from away from the waterline, where all rocks are dry, to searching for specimens in the water. After a few yards I came across this curious piece. It was found as is. I didn't even get the satisfaction of cracking it open. The resemblance to an egg is quite striking. Basically the
