The greatest treasures of Delaware are all what we call Delaware-sized. Everything is kind of scaled down to fit around here. Our deepest cave is like 4 feet deep. The amusement park is a boardwalk attraction. Our national park is tiny. (Some National Parks are bigger than our whole state!) And, although once we did have giant ammonites within reach, most of our greatest fossil finds are of the micro variety.
The fossils shown here are about average sizes for their species. They are so small that they generally fall through everyone's screens. Finding them requires close scrutiny of every grain of sand in front of one's nose.

Shown here: Two Micrabacia solitary corals, a crinoid segment, Boletechinus sea urchin, three brachiopods (Terrebratulina cooperi), a brayozoan branch, and a bit of  tube worm shell (Vermetidae indet.)
