Fossil Friday!


This past week, I had the opportunity to dive into piles of fossils at the exhibit hall at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco. I was up to my neck in trilobites, coprolites, and polished coral. I figured many of these would be a little too easy for you, especially the coprolites (no offense), but I did find some really interesting and unique ones that might challenge your brain a bit.

So, for this week’s Fossil Friday, I am going to put a little bee in your bonnet, because this fossil is definitely buzz worthy! Can you guess who this high flier was? Can you guess when it lived? Where it was found?

Don’t be a fly on the wall for this one. Answer in the comments below. First one to get it wins bragging rights for the week.
