A Few Favorite Fossils

by The Bookologist

Here at the magazine we’ve been looking at a lot of paleontology lately, and we thought we’d share a few of the downright gorgeous or just plain cool fossils that sneaked onto our computers as we prepared this month’s issue. After all, who’s not a pushover for a pretty rock?
