Leaf or feather ?
Fossilised21 posted a topic in Fossil IDI have found these 2 fossils near a creek near the Illawarra escarpment in Sydney basin in New South Wales, Australia which was formed as I understand it 180-200 million years ago (http://www.geomaps.com.au/scripts/illawarraescarpment.php). It was found among a large number of petrified wood and coal fragments. The 2 rocks are very different, the dark one seems to come from a coal shoal, the light one seems to come . I do not have the expertise to determine if these are leaves or feathers.
FossilNovice34 posted a topic in Fossil IDGreetings- I found this rock with kids in Montgomery County, Pa., USA, along creekbed. I believe it's a type of sandstone- the Brunswick and Lockatong formations run through county (apologies-I'm just learning geology, it's red-brown). Curious if this is an animal impression? Footprints are known to be found in the area. Photographed at different angle lights, as it looks so different depending. My son showed at school as a fossil- wanted to give him an informed answer. Thanks so much!
