Fossil tree roots or worm burrows? I found this fossil when we were doing some dozer and excavator work, and found it very unusual. We found several large pieces, some of the rocks/fossils were 18 inches wide and about 18 inches long, it appears to be possibly tree roots or something, am completely stumped and wanted to see if anyone else could identify. I've researched it a little more and I think it seems to be a trace fossil burrow similar to Thalassinoides.
Does anyone recognize this? Please leave a response.
