What a month! Tough decision. I would be over the moon if I found any of these.

Indeed! Both categories this month are a virtual candy store of drool-worthy finds. In addition to providing some great fossil eye candy, there is a subtle educational benefit as well. Looking over the list of candidates each month provides some good information as to what types of fossils are found in different locations (as we get entries from all around the globe each month). I too would be over the moon if I had found any of these items and seeing interesting fossils that particularly catch my eye allows me to make a mental note to add potential future fossil hunting locations to my fossil bucket list. ;)

 

Good luck on choosing your favorite among a strong slate of candidates. Throwing a dart with your eyes closed is a good method, unless there is someone else in the room. :o

 

 

Cheers.
