Hello guys,

 

I was rock climbing and hiking this last weekend and found this egg. It was partially buried.

What caught my attention was the shape and weight. It looks very very light for a normal rock.

Concretion, I'm afraid. 

No egg shell texture at all.

Yup. Concretion, not an egg.

Some concretions can be hollow. Do you hear something when shaking?

It was found 20km away from Lourinhã.
Regarding the concretion, I found a total of 3 in the same meter square.

No, no escucho nada.

Hello,daniel17.

just to tell you that from my own experience, I have found concretions, hollow, with a heavier, lighter interior material, and completely formed by the same material, also found both isolated and together in very little space.
