Hi, I was wondering if anyone can confirm if I've found anything interesting? They look like teeth to me, but probably wrong. Click image for larger version - Name: 20200605_204013.jpg, Views: 35, Size: 86.19 KB

Hello and welcome to the forum. Please could you tell us where you found this? Could you also at least let us know the dimentions, but when taking photos in the future, add a scale to all of them (a ruler is best). I have an idea as to what this is (not teeth) but need to know what the geology is like before I say any more. Thanks for posting.

Hi Colin,
I'm sorry I should have read the pinned post. This was found on the east Lincolnshire coast, between Skegness and Ingoldmells.
I attach a picture showing size.

Thanks Carl, that makes my decision a lot easier! This is part of a burrou made by probably a small crustacean (shrimp type animal) in the sea bed, filled in with a slightly different mud and then hardenned (fossilised). It will be 90 - 100 million years old and classed as a 'trace fossil' (ichnofossil). This would have been laid down in a reasonably deep sea - I add this because had it been a delta / beach environment and not chalk, it resembles part of a dinosaur foorprint! This is why when posting for ID's, as much information as possible is needed!

Hi Colin,

Thank you.... Not as cool as teeth  but still a pretty decent fossil. Thank you.
