Possible discovery. While trimming one of my Wyoming trilobites to make it lay flat in a Riker mount, a large flake came off the back. When I looked at it I could see fossil material showing. I chipped away a little more shale and found what appears under a loupe to be 2 tiny fish hatchlings. The longest is only 1/4" long. I'm gonna chip away a little more shale and put it under the microscope.
See what you think.

A day spent without learning something new, is a day wasted.
