Taking rocks from the beach

Hi everyone. I am on vacation and I found all of these rocks on the beach that look like they were once live rock, So I was wondering if i can I take these rocks and put them in my reef tank.

Thanks

Make sure either it's not illegal to collect those rocks or you don't get caught lol. If there were underwater, then inspect for any bad hitchhikers and if they were dried on the land, wash them really well.

Yeah I don't think you can take it back on a plane, but you can always try. If they don't let you, you just throw it away.
