Some type of fossil head with little teeth, little bigger than a tennis ball

Nature has a way of fooling all of us. I'm sorry but what you have is a very suggestively shaped rock.

Agreed...it doesn't have any of the features that would characterize a 'real' fossil skull....but it sure does LOOK good!

Welcome to the forum Melissa. We're at your service.

 

Do you have any pictures of fossils that you have found in Iowa or other areas?

Welcome to the Forum. :)

Neat rock. I'd  have picked it up for a closer look.

A certain W.Disney  would have been pleased Donald was found as a fossil

One cool looking rock but no fossils there I'm afraid.

I have one location that has rocks that look exactly like bones and teeth at first glance...or is it bones and teeth that look like rocks? Every object has the same polish to it. Either way, it is always hard to distinguish them apart until you clear off some of the matrix, which really slows down one's sifting!  

I agree your item is a funky looking rock and may have been worthy of a second look. Keep hunting, you may find an actual one some day.

Unfortunately, I don't see a determinable skull, but an interestingly eroded rock. Where was it found ?

I've got nothing, but it reminds me of Darth Vader's melted helmet, lol. I would keep it around just so people ask you what it is :)
