North Dakota Dinosaur Egg?

While doing yard work, this rock caught my eye because it looked like it had fresh blood on it. I cleaned it up a bit, but there are about 5 or 6 holes with dark red dirt coming out of them. Could this be an egg? Thanks.

No, sorry - I don't think this is an egg.

I don't see any eggshell structure on the surface of your item - it is geological in origin, rather than biological.

Looks like it may be a Concretion.

Many people are fooled by them.

It looks like a concretion with iron deposits to me, let's see what the others think though

Thanks for the input. I reckon I'll keep it as a conversation piece.
