    $\begingroup$ Hi, the rock you are displaying looks to be a concretion rather than a fossil. In some locales one can occasionally find fossils inside concretions. Other people might have a different idea as to what your rock really is. It might be a good idea to give a general area in your description to help with the id. $\endgroup$ – Friddy Oct 29 '18 at 15:14
  • $\begingroup$ Friddy is right. This seems to be a concretion, not a fossil $\endgroup$ – JulPal Oct 29 '18 at 18:49

I am pretty sure this is a concretion. Concretions come in many forms... see the wiki page on concretionsWiki Page on Concretions. Your particular example appears quite uniform. Sometimes you can find fossils in the interior but I would be reluctant to cut or break open your concretion.
