Dinosaur Eggs!!

Check out this cool rock!  I forget where I found this particular specimen, but upon opening it along a prominent fracture, I discovered the treasures held within.  Unfortunately, the somewhat-spherical pieces in the one half are not dinosaur eggs, but they’re still pretty cool!  They are actually concretions, which are sort of like portions of rocks that become hard before the rest of the surrounding rock, and they can also be a variety of shapes and sizes.  It’s really cool to come across very round concretions that look odd mixed in with the rest of the rock.
