    Cretaceous Coral

    Post  Guest on Mon Mar 26, 2012 11:14 pm

    Yep, I forgot a point of reference! sorry, i know how annoying that is... about the span of an adult hand so quite large. This I believe is coral preserved in flint of the Cretaceous bed in Runton, Norfolk. Would anyone know what type of coral this may be? Any q's do ask. thanks!

    You are probably right, but couldn't it be a potential sponge?
