I was walking at Wren’s Nest, Dudley earlier today. My 4yo boy want to go fossil hunting, and knowing you can basically rock-up there and reliably leave with pocket fulls of samples with very little effort, it felt ideal.
Anyway, amongst the usual fair, I spotted this in situ…
…as I was there with the boy, I didn’t have any of my usual measuring equipment, and it was on the top edge of the coral mounds, so I was more occupied with stopping him falling to his death. From memory, it was no more than 4cm on it’s long axis.
Initially I thought trilobite, but I’ve not been able to identify it.
So, what d’you think it is?
