This evening Crox Minor came home from school and turned out the contents of her pockets. Among the detritus was this object, loaned her by one of her science teachers, a Dr B. B. of Cromer. I think it’s a fossil egg of some sort. I am not aware of the provenance – the object is all I have to go on. At first sight it looks like an ill-used conker, and is indeed about the same size and shape.
However, beneath the thin brown rind there is what looks like the ornament that the inside of an eggshell might leave. Any takers?
I think that’s
a tyrannosaur’s left testicle an oeuf.
