Horn Coral
by: Doug

Grant, this looks like horn coral. Its a little hard to say for sure from this photo. The end nearest to the camera is where the animal lived. Overall it should be cone shaped. Horn corals are now extinct. Unlike todays coral, which are made of colonies, only one animal lived in each horn.
