Plant, scale or other
Lori LuvsFossils posted a topic in Fossil ID(approx 1/2") While flaking split layer material, this appeared. I set it aside with a couple of other fish scales. Upon closer inspection, it seemed to have roots so I changed my thinking to "floating plant". This morning, I looked up plants in my new book "Lost World of Fossil Lake". The roots in the book just dangle down into the water. Makes sense. Mine has a connected pattern. What say you, Wyoming hunters?
My first Fish
Lori LuvsFossils posted a topic in Fossil PreparationThanks to FossilDudeCO I got to try my hand at prepping a fish. I've got almost 7 hours in hand chipping this guy out of the rock. I didn't think it would be buried quite as deeply as it was or I might have turned to a power tool. I know it isn't at all impressive to those of you who know what you're doing or those with rare fish. That's ok. I just want to say thanks for the opportunity and let anyone who might have an interest know: you can do it!
