Can someone tell me what is this?
« on: 30/07/2012 22:33:58 »
Hi all,

While digging in my backyard I found this weird looking rock, that is imprinted with what seems like elephant toes... I know it's strange, and probably nothing, but I'm very curious about it.

Thank you!

Possibly a cast of smooth [tumbled] stones encased in sediment.

i.e. conglomerate where the pebble/cobble-sized clasts are missing ...

Thank you for the answer... It doesn't mean it's very old right?
So no use to dig for more interesting artifact or anything I guess... oh well!  ;)
