I found this a while back and have since gave it to my daughter's boyfriend. He collects fossils and told me what this was but I forgot...It was something like a squid when it was living. I thought it was sort of interesting. Everyone have a great day.

The fossil is a "Cephalopod" (I was told that anyway) not knowing the name was annoying, so I did a bit of searching on the internet.

An excellent fossil specimen, not sure I'm too hot on cephalopods though... lol
Isn't it neat how the mud sediment that formed the surrounding rock eroded down perfectly, to make it look like it is still sitting, fat and happy, on the mud?

Looks like an interesting find. I do a fair amount of fossil hunting myself at Charmouth In Dorset, England. Had some nice finds and will upload a few soon.
