Bobo the bear
Was at Speeton today and found there had been a large fall of mud in large slabs with more to come down. These contain a lot of fossils but I could not get them...don't have the correct tools and they were just disintegrating in the main so I left them in-situ including what I thought may be a heteromorph.
Have included photos of what I managed to get and any ID's would be gladly received.

Could the wood actually be bone....I tried cleaning the clay from the outside but there seems to be a 3-4 mm of a hard outer shell. Sorry didn't include this in original post but didn't spot it until I started cleaning. You can see this in the photos if you look carefully.
