    Could a heavy animal like a Mastedon cause these scratches, maybe by steping on it?

    Those marks are to small to have been caused by a "heavy animal " and the way they disappear on the flat part of the rock makes me feel that they are natural inclusions.

    In life there are losers and finders. Which one are you?

      You're basically asking if it is a trace fossil. Like Bruce said, certainly not a large animal. I don't think it's a trace fossil, but I'm not otherwise sure what the marks are....

        I don't understand flat part? I think under the rind and petina of the three toed sloth marks, lol, the material could be some kind of quartz. But, I've been known to be wrong. I could see some weird organic plant rot away in it long ago. Good eye.
