All I see between your written request are a bunch of numbers and letters and I have no interest whatsoever in clicking on them. Please post your photos here directly.

You should recheck the posting information above. The photos are not available to me at least, and I clicked.:)

Yep, pictures are not working. Please post pictures directly to your post. Off Forum image sites tend to wander off and get lost.

Even without clicking on the links, my money goes for:   Not a dino egg.   Good luck though.

You've never seen my wife's cooking. :heartylaugh:

I'm not married, and I agree this is one for the geologists.

Definitely not an egg, and if you go online to our favorite auction site, you can see what dinosaur eggs don't look like. 90% of them are fake.

It doesn't hurt to ask, because you never know, as you say. But dino eggs are pretty rare so it's no surprise to get a negative result.

For future reference, if you've got a series of photos and the site won't let you put any more up because you've surpassed the size limit and you know your file is less than 4mb, just refresh your browser and try again.

Looks like there could be part of an ammonite or nautilus in there.

I had noticed the shape to the far left before. Junction between to whorls ?

It should noted that it's still very speculative though.
