Default Mysterious egg found in yard...

Can you identify? It's almost round, with a very tough but not brittle shell. Like a medium density plastic. Very firm.

It's about an inch in diameter. Found in the grass, maybe 20 or 30 feet from a marsh. I looked up snake eggs, lizard eggs, & alligator eggs. It's similar, but not exact. It is not like any bird egg I've ever seen.

Perhaps dropped by a bird? Or maybe a traveling animal? What do you guys think?

I read soft-shelled turtles and snapping turtles lay eggs that are as round as a ping-pong ball, but a little smaller.
Owls also lay round eggs.

Turtle egg gets my vote.

Maybe a raccoon dug up buried eggs and left one behind?

Try hatching it out

That is an interesting find. Any owls in your area? Just wondering.
