Two for the Price of One (Two-fer)

Well, actually a three for the price of one. This a fossil Apalone species soft-shelled turtle. The fish below is a Knightia eocaena. If you stare real hard you'll see a Love Bug, Pleacia pealei in the lower right corner as well. These come from Fossil Lake in Wyoming and date back to the Eocene, 54.8-33.7 million years ago. They are all fossilized into the lake sediment.
