    Found this fossil on Manitoulin Island in Central Ontario - Canadian Shield area. I'd be interested in knowing what epoch they're from.

    I'm thinkin' it's tube worms? Graptolites?

    Or rebar.

    I'll beat you to the punch:

    Pennyplodicus c. 2006.

    Sample worth about 1 cent.

    Smart ass.

    Thank you! I do think that's it.

    Jeez, these little shapes I've got here are almost a half billion years old!

    It's very cool, I have (somewhere) a disc full of pictures I've taken of my fossils. I have one that I haven't found identified anywhere. It falls into the brachiopod class, but has features never described or photographed, as far as I can tell, and I have searched EVERYTHING. One of these days I going to contact KU and see if anything like it has ever been found before.
