Hi, my son found this rock by the river and thinks it's a fossil. He first saw what looked a bit like a bird but when we examined top, bottom and around it we started seeing other bits. If anyone could confirm and hopefully identify anything then that would be really great. My son would be over the moon if it is a fossil. It's hard to see in places but we can see what looks like three claws and possibly a head and spine.

Hello and welcome to the forum. To me this doesn't look like a fossil, but I need to know where it was found and it's size. It's always good to add some sort of scale in all photos (a ruler is best) and as much location detail as possible.

Hi, he found it by the river Tees in Barnard Castle. I wasn't so sure when I saw it at first but on closer inspection I do think there is something there. I even made him do the tongue test 😂. I will put on another photo which we think looks like a head and neck/spine. Could be wrong as I'm definitely no expert. Thanks
