Fossil Friday

This week on Fossil Friday, I’m sharing the first of a series of specimens from one of our top fossil commenters, Dan Phelps. There are a lot of exciting fossils to explore in his collection. For the first, I’m going in a much different direction from my recent posts. I promise you, this is not a plant! Check it out, I left the scale marker next to it and everything. What is it? Two clues: Pleistocene; something common to most mammals.


Be the first to identify it in the comments (except for you, Dan!) and win bragging rights for the week!
