Is this a ball joint fossil?

Recommended Posts

I found it in Latvia (Europe), near Broceni, on my land. Excavator was digging pebbles and rocks for road repair, and about 2 meters deep I spotted this stone which looked  interesting. Some of the other stones around contain small shell imprints. And at the depth of about 4 meters there is Zechstein rocks: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zechstein
As I understand that means that millions of years ago there was a sea, where I am digging my rocks now. 
Please take a look at that piece of rock and tell me what you think, could it be a fossil?

Can't see any bone structure.

Just a suggestively shaped concretion I think.

Or a chert nodule.

Welcome to the Forum. :) 

 

Concretion gets my vote as well.
