Today I went Orthoceras hunting on the shore of Lake Ontario. I found a rock that clearly has some fossil activity going on but I cannot figure it out. I am unsure if it is just a strangely configured algae fossil (just different than I normally find). 

 

P.s. please disregard my bunny pajamas lol

If the bunnies are small enough it could be a remnant of an aulopora colony. I'm not at all confident of it though.

So sorry. Forgot to give a size reference. The rock itself is maybe 5 to 5 1/2 inches long.

These might be water worn rocks exposing sections of rugose coral. I can more clearly make out the detail of coral in the piece just behind it.

Thank you, folks. It's beginning to look like it may be bryzoans, just sort of grouped together differently than the usual bryzoans I find.
