Is this a gastropod fossil? IMG_20200619_110351.jpg IMG_20200619_110437.jpg

Very strange, I think it is just a flint but I must admit it could be mistaken for a fossil

Hello, could you ansnwer a couple of questions please? Where was it found? I assume that this is one specimen and that the right hand photo is the darker base of the left hand photo? Oh, and what is the rock made of? If it is flint you will not be able to scratch it with something steel and leave a groove.

I'd suggest sea polished/tumbled limestone pebble with gastropod that's made its way from the Carboniferous limestone outcrop further along the coast. Rhyl is on Triassic (unfossiliferous).

Yes, if it scratches and leaves a groove then it is probably a Carboniferous limestone pebble with a gastropod.
