Find Of The Month Winner's Gallery

Recommended Posts

JohnJ

This is the official The Fossil Forum Find of the Month winner's gallery.

A few suggestions by Auspex led to this Gallery of the Find Of The Month winners, but the Fossils will speak for themselves. Although it is November 2010, we want to thank again all who have shared their finds and knowledge in the contests.

Now, we present to you the Winning Fossils from the beginning. Enjoy!
