Are these even fossils??

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, 

This is my second post hopefully I can get some answers on these!

 

I found these in a town called Tunkhannock in Northeastern Pennsylvania in part of a mountainous area. They were just in some shale I was breaking up. Any kind of research I’ve done says there’s really not much for fossils in that area. Any ideas?? 

 

Thanks in advance friends!

The specimen appears a bit dark, but I would guess possibly in-filled worm burrow.

I agree with burow casts.

Trace fossils.

To me they resemble "Pillsbury Space Food Sticks"

( chocolate flavor)

 You have to be from a few generations back to remember those! ;)

Thanks for the quick responses! 

It’s really cool that this is how they are formed and preserved!

They were a segway drug to Tiger's Milk protien bars.
