My Nevada Fossil Finds - #05

Yucca Peak Fossil 01
Picture Notes: During a hike on 04/18/2013 to the Yucca Peak fossil beds inside the Desert National Wildlife Range, I found the two rocks shown in diptychs above and below. Though I’m not sure what the stem-like fossils are in (Fig. 02), you can see from the top and bottom view of this specimen, that they extend right through the rock. The fossil in (Fig. 03) is half of a clam-like shell. The first picture shows the rounded surface of the outer top half of the shell; while the bottom of the specimen shows the bottom edges of the shell. (Figs. 04 & 05) are some more examples that I found while hike the upper ridge of these fossil beds.
