A Couple Of Hell Creek Oddities

Recommended Posts

I found these to items in the cretaceous age Hell Creek formation near Glendive, MT a couple of months ago, and I was hoping someone might have a clue as to what they could be, fossil or otherwise.

No idea on the first one

second one looks a bit like cliona ridden shell. Could the red color of the material be from weathering? Forget my first statement if this isn't a marine deposit.

They look like plant material. I have seen similar specimens here in NM...a bunch of organic debris mashed together. The first may be bark of some sort and second might be palm.
