Found these in an arroyo in southeastern Colorado. I am really interested in what exactly they are.

Cretaceous Fossil
by: Douglas

Mary,

Assuming you found this near Model it is from the Cretaceous Period. which does make it 65 to 100 million years old. I can't identify any fossils on this piece but it looks like there may be more than one.

You can learn more about the Cretaceous Period here:
