Tiny Fossil

Tiny Fossil

I took this photograph along the shores of Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba. As I was walking along the shoreline, I found this beautiful gem. What is interesting about Lake Winnipeg is that it was part of an ancient inland ocean. According to Wikipedia, “Lake Winnipeg was considered to be an inland sea, with important river links to the mountains out west, the Great Lakes to the east, and the Arctic Ocean in the north. The Red River linked ancient northern and southern peoples along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.” 

If I am correct, this is an ammonite in rock. According to the British Geological Survey, “Ammonites lived during the periods of Earth history known as the Jurassic and Cretaceous. Together, these represent a time interval of about 140 million years.” 

Thanks in advance for liking, commenting, sharing and purchasing.
