This week on the Fossil Friday, I give you one more item from our fossil friend, Gerald. This one I love—long, thin phalanges with nails that are deeply in need of a manicure. Can you tell from this photo what it was? Any guesses what it ate? How it moved? Where it lived?
Doing some research online, I found many different ideas about this animal's lifestyle based on its anatomy—so you can't go wrong making an educated guess. But I'll give you one hint: It's not a sloth. Seriously. I promise!
