Bay Of Fundy Fossil?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was walking along the Bay Of Fundy in New Brunswick, along the Dover area, when I saw something in a cracked-open boulder lying along the side of the road. Anyone have any idea what this might be? I went back this summer to see it again, but it was gone (probably due to erosion...everything on that side seems to be slowly sliding into the mud).

Monkey embryo? :P

More seriously, I have no idea what it is, but it's weird and cool! It's really too bad you weren't able to collect it.

Hahaha! It is weird, isn't it? The two halves of the boulder probably weighed a lot more than I could carry. In fact, I didn't think it would slide into the Bay, but maybe someone else collected it? I hope so! It's a shame to lose it. :D

In the photos, it looks like a void; is this correct? It also appears devoid of symmetry. My best guess: entrained gas bubbles.

Yes, it is a void! :) I never would have thought of gas bubbles!
