Pseudo Fossils are natural objects that resemble fossils, but are not fossils. Some concretions and minerals are often mistaken for fossil.
A good example of a pseudo fossil is manganese oxide in the form of a dendrite. These look like like moss or plant fossils.
Also sedimentary structures such as cracks or traces of rain drops can sometimes be mistaken as fossil skin.
