Found this on the surface in a small area of exposed layered greenish and purple decomposing sedimentary rock at the base of Comb Wash west of Blanding, Utah.  The layers of rock were below a steep cliff and of Wingate sandstone and I assume the time period to be Triassic but I could be off by a few hundred million years.  

The fossil is a clump of round nodules approximately 5mm in diameter.  They have raised lines separating the balls.  It could be a clump of seeds compacted in a dinosaur's gut and defecated or maybe fossilized soft tissue like lung alveoli.  Thoughts and questions are very much welcome! 20231205_201949.thumb.jpg.06838d56db5678d8464474bef9c0344c.jpg

Wild!  Def a keeper!

 

As I scrolled through the topics at first I swore this topic title read “clump of 🍜 noodles”. Must be lunchtime

Beautiful!!! Not a fossil, but definitely a keeper. Most intriguing septarian concretion I've ever seen.

Fossil hunting is easy -- they don't run away when you shoot at them!
