Challenge #96 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
Here's an interesting one for you, to show us evidence that life was around a long, long time ago. The fossils, such as shells, animals, petrified wood may be still in situ out there in the natural world, or you may have interesting specimens which you use as paperweights or doorstops! Please, NO photos of elderly grandparents as this may offend those of us in our dotage. Size, 1,600px MAXIMUM on the entry's longer side. Macro and close-ups welcome. If you have knowledge of the fossil, please share it with us.
