Is this a fossil?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I hope I am posting this correctly... I was working on the Wabasca River in Norhern Alberta and I picked up this rock in the river for one of our substrate measurements.  It looks so different I wondered if it could be a fossil or an impression of a fossil.  I haven't the foggiest idea where to start looking to identify it so I joined this group in hope that someone might shed light on it.  Thanks for any help, I didn't get the best photo but I tried

On the very first view, i cannot see any fossil here, but wait for the experts to chime in...

More photos from different angles would help, a scale and if possible a rough stratigraphic overview of the site where it was found...

Yep, cone-in-cone.  ALSO, a warm welcome to TFF from Austin, Tx.  This is a great place to come with such questions.  Hope your interest in fossils grows and you keep coming back.
