Hello, my son found these on Paignton beach and Seaton beach. The smaller one looks like a shell but we'd love to know if it is actually a fossil and what type. As for the other two, he's just really wants them to be fossils so I'm hoping!!

Hello Sophie and welcome to the forum.I will use the photo numbers that appear on the slideshow.
  1. 4 5 7 8the grey pyramid I think contains a belemnite of some sort but not sure
  2. I can't see anyevidence of a fossil, but there may be sections of bivalves in the swirly pattern
  3. I think these are feeding trails of a modern gastropod

The leftmost specimen in pic 3 (yellow-brown-grey), which appears in most of the subsequent photos, looks very much like a solitary coral. The patterns in the reddish-brown specimen to its right may also be coral. Probably Devonian in age, given the location.
