It looks a little like a shelled reptile, with a long snout. Found in California. 20170419_215221.jpg 20170419_215159.jpg  20170417_125019.jpg      20170419_215146.jpg

Hello, the photos are really blurred, I really think it is just a rock.

Its certainly just a rock as Brittle Star has suggested. Keep looking and learning and you will find fossils as long as you are looking in the right places. Books and the internet will teach you how to spot the organic from the inorganic.


Thanks

Hi, they all looks like rocks, some stained, sorry I still do not see any fossils.

Look for sedimentary rocks or limestone or shale, they may contain fossils, granite etc will not as far as I am aware. The ones you have look pretty hard.
