I was in the creek looking for cool rocks and I found this, I have no clue what it is and was wondering if it might be a fossil.

This is defiantly an interesting rock. Since most of West Virginia is Paleozoic rocks It could be a fossil. I don't see anything I recognize but more information would be helpful. What part of WV did you find this rock? That can give us the age of the rock.

Look at a "geology map of WV", just google the phrase in quotes and look at the images. Post your findings in the comments to this submission.
