What is this?

Recommended Posts

I have what appears to be fossils all over the property i bought last year. We are located in North Texas, the area is very sandy with layers of rock. Ammonites are everywhere here. Large ones that measure 3-4 feet across. I will post some of the images I have. I will provide more details in the days to come, along with measurements as requested by some of the more experienced folks. Any idea what this is? It's about 14-18 inches long. As stated, more precise details to come.

Looks like weathered limestone to Me. Not seeing any fossil.

Very hard, yet shaped so unusual. Not sure why limestone would form like this, but that is what makes life so interesting. Thanks for the feedback.

Not formed like that in particular, it weathered away less resistant areas to look like that.

I agree with the others. Got any pics of your 3-4 foot ammonites?
