    I found this one day a while back and never really found one person that could tell me exctly waht it is. To me it looked like a turtle shell, Took it to a few Universities and they called it some sort of other thing. Can anyone tell from my picture?

    Does anyone think it is a turtle? I am thinking of sending it to the Natural history Museum or some place where some one can tell me something. I really would like to know exactly what it is. Any help I would appreciate it. Thanks

    We'd need more information, such as what does the underside look like? is it actually shell or a fossil? It almost looks like terracotta pottery from the images. Report back with whatever you can tell us and i'll have another look at it.

    Well it's not a turtle shell, and if it's not pottery, wood, bone etc...it must be stone, If it is it must be a fossil of some sort, possibly a clutch of dinosaur eggs.
