Fossil Friday!

This week's fossil is one that everyone should recognize. Though this one dates back to the Miocene, it is a delicacy people still enjoy today, myself included! It may look like a footprint or even a sloth coprolite (that's a fancy word for fossilized poop), but no, it was probably as tasty then as it is now. What was this little creature? Where was the fossil found?

First person to identify it gets bragging rights for the week!
