    Cambrian stromatolites These lovely outcrops are found in the late-Cambrian aged Hoyt Formation of northern New York State near Saratoga Springs. They have been variably described as “Cabbage-head” stromatolites or “domal” stromatolites. Stromatolites are rocky fossils made out of alternating layers of sediment and cells/organic material that adheres the sediment in place. Much like the stromatolites found growing today near Australia’s Shark Bay ( , these grow out

    One of the most amazing fossil finds ever: during the Polish-Mongolian paleontological expedition to the Gobi Desert of Mongolia, in 1971, an articulated Velociraptor mongoliensis skeleton was found with hands and feet grasping a Protoceratops andrewsi. Evidence suggests that these two dinosaurs were indeed killed simultaneously, smothered by sand, possibly during a dune collapse or flood.

    Opalized Sphenodiscus - I've a passion for fossils! Especially ammonites!! Having been most fortunate to have dug for the rarest of these beauties in South Dakota. Yes, in parts of Canada you may find these amazing red beauties, but it's my opinion that theirs don't even come close to matching South Dakota's. In 1998 I found my "museum quality" ammonite, that looks exactly like the one in this photo. Mine is all so in matrix, (makes it more valuable) and is larger than this one...LOVE IT!!!

    Ammonite Lyme Regis

    This is a 50-million-year-old fish (Phareodus) from the Green River Formation of Wyoming. This fossil is testament to a time when giant lakes covered large parts of Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado. The Science Museum of Minnesota's Paleontology Department has over 100 fossils of Green River fish, including some type specimens (specimens on which new species are based).

    This fearsome fossilized fish is preserved at the Sternberg Museum in Hays, Kansas. Posted by mike 11:03 AM | Comments/Permalink (0) Categories: Nature | top of page
