Fossil Friday!

This week on the Fossil Friday. I answer a special request from last week’s winner, Gerald Wilgus. Gerald thought we’ve had too many invertebrates lately, and maybe we should throw the vertebrate people a bone—no pun intended!

So this week, I bring you some not-so-tiny toes! These chicken-like feet sure could use a manicure. I added my toes in too just for size comparison—though mine are much smaller!

These toes were poking around what is now Utah in the late Jurassic.  It was a meat-eater...but that’s all I’ll tell you!

The first person to identify this fellow gets bragging rights for the week—and to decide the topic for next week’s Fossil Friday!
