From the album: Invertebrates and plants(& misc.)Both of a single anomalocaris' appendages. Possible anomalocaris goo? A speculation I think would be very cool, that the splotchy splatters around appendages could, however likely or unlikely, be anomalocaris "filling" or fragments, since it appears the whole animal was present at the beginning, and maybe included in fossilization, immediately below the edge of this piece, since the 2 appendages are in articulated position.
Found (on skis) in glacial material. Most likely from a lower Devonian marine delta related formation. The traces don't photograph well, but they seem to be closely associated with the bivalve fossil. How do the odds look that the association is trace to maker ?
Does anyone have any fossils of, or with anomalocaris BODIES? I'm interested in seeing what they look like. I did searches for them and they all look so random, without any features except for the overlapping ends. Even the beautiful full-animal fossils have bodies like that. Did they always fossilize so unimpressively?
I had to look at this one twice. It seems to have a process sticking off the wrong side of the centrum at first glance. The pedicles and neural arch are missing, and the spinal canal location is evident. It has a pronounced triangular shape. This leads me to think I am looking at 1/2 of an Axis vertebra, but the shape seems all wrong for that too. What are we looking at here? 3.5 inches across. 2.5 inches deep
