ichnofossils – trace fossils

Photographs of ichnofossils from the Amherst College Museum. These fossils interest me on several levels, as traces of animal behavior and history they are fascinating. The addition of old cryptic markings and Latin naming adds another layer of interest and meaning to the images.
