I said I was going to tell you about the fossils that Martin gave me as a present, and here they are. One is a trilobite eye - it is special because you can see all the tiny, tiny dots that make up the eye - it is so old, and you can still see them all! It looks a bit like an eye from a fly or dragonfly! You can see more of the fossil on my Bought Fossils page, although we need to change that name, because these we didn't buy!!
Martin also gave me two corals - they are called rugosa corals, and they grew 'solitary', that means one by one. They look like ice cream cones! They can be in different sizes, and we took a picture of the top of one, because it has a pattern - you can see the whole corals on the other page.
AND he gave me a sea urchin. He showed me a real dead sea urchin, and it was all light, but this one was all heavy, because it got filled up with stuff and then it all fossilised, and now it is made from chalk. That's what I use to write on my blackboard, but I won't write with this one!
I still need to tell you all about the dinosaur footprints!!
Hello, my name is Toby. I am five years old, and I want to be a palaeontologist. I really like fossils, so I'm writing down everything I do with fossils! My Mummy is doing the typing until I'm a bit older, but she writes everything I say.
