Enviable find. There were lots of great finds this month but that micro-fossil stole my heart.

 

Cheers.

Thanks, Ludwigia. My eyes are getting old, but that's what magnification is for! LOL .      I usually find the individual teeth, so to me this tiny jaw looked pretty big.

Thank you, Heteromorph. I think this fossil had a bit of rust with it. The fossils in this matrix are usually black.

This is certainly not all of what can be found and the pics aren't very good, but here:
