Tery, thanks for sharing these concretions! Exactly same round boulders one can see in certain sites of the Negev Desert. That means, a similar 'story' happened there.

LOL, looks like there must have been one HUGE cow there in prehistoric times!!!!

Thanks Ilya wikipedia notes half a dozen places for them and I've seen them in Norman Wells, NWT of Canada. The Moeraki Boulders in New Zealand are similar in size but are known to prettier quartzite structures inside.

Speaking of size kamaly they'd be about right for dinosaur droppings! Maybe a brontosaurus cow. ;)
