I'm not sure what's more impressive, the ammonite, or your vision. Good eye!

I was hoping you would enter that in the FOTM!  One thing though, could you specify which track you are calling Nanopus

Hey Don, I was told both sets are Nanopus.

Lucky dog!  Anyway I think it's good to be clear about that when people are judging it for the contest.

Nice trackways. I'll just note that the trackmaker of Nanopus is not fully understood, but was definitely not a salamander, as salamanders had not evolved yet by the Carboniferous. Might be a small temnospondyl, though.

Very nice! I love diversity in our FOTM contest and we don't see too many ichnofossils.

 

 

Cheers.

Ric's ichno's could stand against most of my actual body fossils... If others have ichnos of that calibre, they should enter them too!

Indeed.

Perhaps my strong suit is bra chippies.

LOL. Another good reason not to use a phone for visiting TFF as opposed to a laptop or desktop. :D
