It's only a couple inches long. No idea but assume is something that swimmed, crawled or oozed around an ancient sea.Call me stupid but I can't tell what that is for sure. Sheep skull?
I see two different types of coral in @mtnrunner260 's post.It's only a couple inches long. No idea but assume is something that swimmed, crawled or oozed around an ancient sea.
There were tons of desert bighorns before domestic sheep grazing. A petrified horn would be an amazing find!

I told this story on another thread but will share it again. When I lived in WV, I used to camp and fish along the river all the time. My girlfriend at the time was an airhead from Phoenix that lived with me.
The first time I took her to the river, she was looking for cool rocks and found half of an old walnut shell. She asked what it was and I told her it was a fossilized pig snout. I have a decent poker face due to nerve damage and a dry sense of humor as well, so I sounded and looked serious. I figured she'd know that I was joking but I guess they don't have many walnut trees in the desert.
Apparently she posted pictures of it on her Facebook and bragged about finding it to people on the mountain. I didn't know until a week or two later when she brought it up again. I laughed so hard that I cried. The look on her face after I told her the truth was priceless!
She ended up dumping me about a month and a half later. She didn't cite the pig snout as being the reason but who knows, might've played a part.
