We have just read some more comments. Ruth told us all about Whitby Jet - it is a fossil, too. It comes from a tree called a monkey puzzle tree. We think we found some Whitby Jet, but we're not sure, it might just be a stone. We looked what a monkey puzzle tree looks like, here is a picture ( http://bonsaibc.ca/CONIFERS%20A-O.htm). We did see lots of jet in Whitby in the shops, some were jewellery, and some were carved like animals, but we didn't buy any.
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.
