I will tell you that it very rare to find fossilized fish heads, especially ones that aren't squished flat.
Thanks, I'd appreciate that.I'll be back later to see if anyone else may have ideas on this.thanks for your help.
It's possible they could be trace fossils (like worm burrows, etc). Those are very difficult to identify. Also, it could be that the actual fossil weathered out of the rock and all you have left is the matrix that surrounded it. The pictures are too grainy for me to really tell anything specific. Could you get your hands on an actual digital camera rather than using a scanner?I will tell you that it very rare to find fossilized fish heads, especially ones that aren't squished flat.
This type of critter may be responsible for the trace markings on your fossil [ Invalid Attachment ] Tentaculites richmondensis [nofollow] (reminds me of a Rawlplug)
OK, great.Here are the pics..sorry about the quality.Tried to get a pic of the "mouth" area,looks like plankton sifting teeth.Sorry abut the quality.
I agree with RD. Likely trace fossils. A fossilized fish would look something like this:The roundness of the stone suggests fluvial or marine processes at work. Can you give more information on where it was found?
