Looks like a bit of road... tarmac with bits in...

Mummified body of a predator (bird in perfectly good condition.. I would like to do the testing for the presence of proteins and other substances electronic microscope, X-ray and other tests. But I do not have access to these expensive devices. It is possible that these tests should be well paid and how much could it cost? DSC00078.JPG

Sorry this is not a fossil and not per mineralised remains of anything. The big white areas are crystals called feldspar therefore this is volcanic rock.

This fossil I found in 2001 in a secluded cove sea (limestone rocks and white sand) so how could arise something colorful, if it would not be organic properties?

If you tilt it slightly to the left it does sort of look like a dead skunk in the middle of the road.

Hello, so we finally agree; it is a fossil roadkill, it`s been run over by a fossil lorrydriver that had smoked an enourmous amount of fossil pot...

Easy, not to be compaired with IDeeing fossil  cephalopods...


greetings, Bert

the search is as valuable as the finds...

There are two types of meteorites... Meteor-rights and meteor-wrongs.... This is definitely a meteor-wrong... This is not a fossil and it is a volcanic originating Rock.

I do believe if something occurred around volcanic. Permineralizace may also penetrate between 10,000 years and may be of any animal that is without oxygen buried under sediment. I say, just one test and see the truth. (Iƒâ€š‚´am using translator) p10104801.jpg

Also take a look at the anatomy of the bird skeleton. You will see that at the end of the wing are actually three fingers, two connected one alone. As a photop10105172.jpg

If you want to do testing, then do it yourself and leave us here in peace. We've given you our opinions.

Can't see any bird, nor bone, nor any organic matter whatsover, just pebbles in a breccia. I'm not even sure it is volcanic, the clasts seem to be made of limestone and chert.

Anywhere for little ammonites, twice as far for big ones!

I think you are on the right track - it does have a polygon shape.

Is the black material soft ? If so it is likely nothing more than a bunch of beach pebbles cemented by tar residue from an oil spill, fairly common on some beaches.
