Fossils of avenal california

  1. 1. Found by Nicholas Davis<br />Fossils of Avenal California<br />
  2. 2. Pelecypod (clam)<br />Found in the San Joaquin Formation these bi valves are still around today you see them all over the place where there is fresh or salt water. They burrow in the sediment and grab passing phytoplankton to eat.<br />
  3. 3. Planicardium virginianum (cockle shell)<br />This fossil was also found in the San Joaquin Formation. From what I found in research this is a another clam type bivalve living similarly to the clam in my previous slide.<br />
  4. 4. Gastropods (snails)<br />These I found in the same formation . These little snails are still obviously around today we see them in the aquariums and in our gardens. The shapes might be a bit different but they are still snails. <br />
  5. 5. Like I said all of these fossils I have found in the same area along with multiple other fossils. I have not been able to figure out the age of them but I would like to know and I'm still trying to figure that out. <br />I had a lot of fun with this project and I learned a lot.<br />
