A new specimen from the new Lower or Testhole bed at Richardson Ranch. These are interesting eggs because they do seem to show some differences to the other eggs in the area, with their pleasing simple and slightly stretched looking matrix. This is only the second I have seen but it’s a location to keep an eye on, I think.
Exactly what is going on here, and how that bizarre ‘peeled off’ mineral layer formed, i am not sure. It’s not quite like any egg i have ever seen before.
