Hi guys, hope everyone is good, A friend gave me this as he wasn't sure it was a fossil and said he found it in Menorca, he says inland a fair bit, couldn't remember the exact locality. Is this a fossil, if so any ideas? Thanks and all the best
After stumbling across my 1st ever fossil yesterday, I was determined to get out again this morning for a proper look, I did manage a few hours, never imagined how hard going it is though, using a caveman approach didn't help matters(bashing rocks together) I did manage to find a few though, most definitely missed a lot more Anyways, a few pics of what I found and some cool looking things in rocks
Gettings, I was recently visiting the north coast of the Balearic Island of Menorca and what I found there was a moon like landscape formed apparently between the Cambrian and the Devonian period, the area of the island is called Favaritx in case someone feels interested and I saw this strange drawings at some rocks, which I suspect that may be ichnofossils or trace fossils from echinoids or molluscs... What do you think? Thank you very much.
