    Default Crusty

    I found this guy down below our house. This area was once
    part of an inland salt water sea and I find stuff like this a lot.
    Anyone have any idea what it could be? I am guessing a
    pre-historic shrimp...if you look close you can see it's eye.

    Thanks "TFC". Looks like you nailed it. Mine is pretty worn compared to some others
    I found on line but it's still a cool find. That's the second one I have found, the other
    is on a rock too big to move.

    Tig - It's about 4" in diameter.
