Unless I'm very mistaken, That looks like part of an ammonite , its most likely an inner section of the very large ammonite Parapuzosia leptophylla thats preserved in flint. Thats quite an interesting find. Its unusual but not unknown to find bits of ammonite in flint & i have only found one bit so far in about 10 years of fossil hunting, i would love to find a complete flint specimen but i doubt i ever will.
Anyway its a good find & It certainly looks real to me.
Thanks for that Keith. I was actually hoping it was a baby Spiro! Ha ha
I saw one online that had the heading 'suspected burned dinosaur egg found in China'. It looks exactly the same! Whatever it is, I love it! I was going to add more pictures to this post but I don't think it will let me.
Well I'm sure that I'm correct but sometimes i feel its all to easy to jump in with a reply with out spending enough time making sure about what you are saying!
But with this its something I'm familiar with , i only collect from the chalk these days & thats where yours has came from.
I would realy like to see more images, you should be able to post as many as you want, have you given the photos different file names from the one thats already posted?
I can see them ok but i wish i couldn't! I'm very sorry to say but now i doubt that is what i said before, the extra photos show a lot more details & it looks like i was very mistaken after all..
I'm afraid your back to square one again for now because i wouldn't like to say what that is now.
My apologies again.
Hello Juestunde -
Sorry, I cannot tell what this is from the photograph. I would like to hold the specimen to see how heavy/light it is and to take a closer look under the microscope. If you post it to IAS2@nhm.ac.uk I will take a closer look at it and show it to a variety of specialists to comment.
Hope this helps a little,
