Eggs?
by: Doug

Hi Mohamed,

This looks like a nest with eggs. But it that is just a guess. It is hard to make a positive identification from a photo.

It could be that it is not a fossil but a mineral formation. Things that look similar to this that are not fossils: concretions, and boytroidal hematite.

I don't think it is either one of these things though.

The best thing you can do to help identify your find is to locate the place where you found it on a stratigraphy map. This is a special kind of geology map that tell you the age of the rocks.

That can help you know if the area was ocean or land. It will also help you find what animals lived at that time. Then you can make a good guess at what you have.
