Looks like a piece of flint to me abbfabb....can't see any fossil I'm afraid. Others may see something.

Just a flint nodule with possibly another mineral within it.

I agree with the others, this is just another fragment of Flint/Chert with an impurity or bit of bedrock in it.

Be sure to have a good look online at Flint and Chert (two names for the same thing depending upon the rock they formed in). At least have a read through the wiki page and look at some images of it online to help familiarise yourself with it so you can ID it yourself in future. It seems based on your other posts you encounter it a lot and it can come in several colours and an array of shapes to mislead you further! We hope you find some non-flint next time, good luck! 🤞

Was curious as there are teeth marks on it , and a little white lizard thing?

I don't see anything like teeth marks or a lizard shape, sorry.. More likely stress marks and a bit of mineral/rock that invaded the stone.

As i said before Flint comes in many colours and shapes.. If you want it bad enough its like looking at clouds and eventually you will see shapes and things that aren't there! There is nobody here who hasn't picked up a rock hoping it was something better at some point, so don't feel too bad (see my recent 'Iron Vert' post)!

The key is to familiarise yourself with the different rocks that trick you and in time you will learn to identify them and know when its not just a rock. Keep hunting 💪🏻

As fascinating and beautiful as those colours and patterns are, I’m 100% sure it’s flint.
