This week on Fossil Friday we have an unusually colorful specimen. Take a look!
I was really impressed by its vibrancy when the curator brought it out. Its preservation is slightly unusual for fossils in general, but typical for the location where this specimen was found. In terms of scale, it’s not too big—it would just barely fit in your hand. I never saw anything like this before, but I suspect older readers will know what it is right away. First person to identify this specimen wins bragging rights for the week!
