    I found this by a creek in looking at others posts, I feel like it's some kind of coral but I'd like to have someone else's take on it! It's made up of geometric shapes, mostly octagonal. It reminds me of a wasps nest.

      Brain coral. A lot of it is found well inland from the Gulf coast. Much of it is fossilized.

      A coral in the hexaganoria family, due to the general 6-sided colonies covering it.
