I recently found what looks like a fossilised dinosaur egg. I found it at the bottom of the clay cliffs in Folkestone, Kent. It is about 20cm wide, very heavy and grey/beige in colour. I was told by some German fossil hunters who were there when I found the object that it could be a dinosaur's egg. Is it possible that it could be a dinosaur egg? Are dinosaur eggs commonly found on the South East coast? Further, would such an egg be worth anything?
Sorry for starting a new thread with the same question but I couldn't attach photos to the existing thread.
No it is not a dinosaur or any other sort of egg.
It is just a somewhat rounded lump of (maybe) sandstone. These sorts of pieces can arise by accident, though stones trapped in true pot holes (in river beds and foreshores) can end-up being much rounder by dint of the particular erosion there.
To be an egg, it would be much more regular and would have a distinct 'shell'.
Very nice find.
Unfortunately nature has thrown up something that looks like a dino egg but it's not.
I would call it an 'erratic' worn into it's present shape by the actions of the wind direction and strength, tide size and hight, longshore drift etc.
And were things of a similar density settle on the beach.
