Fossilized Egg

Recommended Posts

I found this in the cascade mountain range in Wa State. If it’s a fossilized egg, can some one possibly identify it.

Sorry, weathered concretion. There could be a fossil in it though.

Hi Lenny. This doesn't have the right shape for egg and no evidence of shell material. which would be much thinner than what's here. There's definitely a layer of one material around another but I'm not versed in the geology of that area. It is similar to some nodules that contain fossils. If you wanted to try splitting it you might ask @Nimravis how to go about it. Good luck!

Even if it were an egg, the chances of it being from a dinosaur are pretty much nil. Washington state is too young for dino's. *sigh*

I would not suggest that- unless the area contained fossils inside concretions similar to concretions found at Mazon Creek.

@Lenny  Seriously, this is the expert advice.

Is this not the spot in the general area where they freestyle (with a big hammer) crabs and such from concretions ?
