Hi,
I found this egg-shaped object in the high desert (Joshua Tree area). It’s about 1 inch long and looks like it’s made of sand, with openings on top and bottom. Somebody’s home?
Very curious, thank you.

Desert Thing

Dear Marianne,
We aren’t exactly sure what this thing is, but we suspect is was created by some insect or other arthropod.  Perhaps one of our readers will be able to provide an identification.
