Fossil ID Please


Kestrel

Recommended Posts

I am trying to navigate the site. I am older and not very swift

I am trying to get a fossil ID. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

This was a gift and I have no info.

Thanks in advance.

Mike aka Kestrel

Welcome to the Forum, Mike. :)

 

Looks like fossil bird footprints, to me. 

Great fossil!

I'm wondering what are those little dots on the plate?

I bet it's essentially a degassing feature.

Could be raindrops.  ;)

The consistency of the surface and size of drop would have to be in an extremely delicate balance to get them that small and uniform. They typically are more moonscape looking. It is still a distinct possibility s though.

Eocene bird tracks from the Green River Formation.  

Excellent piece! :thumbsu:
