Oh yeah, it's #FossilFriday! Here's a weird #fossil I didn't know existed until going to Anticosti this year: aulacerid stromatoproids, which are columnar, calcareous sponges. The biggest we found was over 1.5 m long!

For this week's #FossilFriday, here's a skull cast of Eoraptor! One of the earliest dinosaurs known (dating back to about ~230 million years ago), Eoraptor is so primitive that researchers still aren't certain whether it's more closely related to theropods or sauropods.

For #FossilFriday: the slide that started our paper in Proc B! A jaw cross-section of a therapsid shows some teeth fused in place and others suspended in sockets. That's because they are two stages in the lifecycle of a typical tooth! Mammals keep teeth in the "earlier" stage.

Probably the nicest bryozoan dominated mortality plate I have seen: dominated with fenestrates, but with cryptostome and cystoporate forms also present. I admit a bias towards the Carboniferous ! Lower Carboniferous, County Durham. #FossilFriday
