Worm Creature from Arizona Desert

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been finding all sorts of neat rocks and marine fossils in the desert outside of Yuma, Arizona where the Colorado river had once flowed into a large ocean.  There seems to be some sort of worm creature fossilized in this stone?   I would appreciate an ID on the specimen, or speculation as to what it is?  Thank you.

A warm welcome to TFF from Austin, Tx.  I believe what you have found is a crinoid stem.  Do a google search and you will see similar picts to what you have.  Again, welcome.

I agree - a crinoid stem in chert.
