Old Trick, New Place

Last Fall, while collecting from the Devonian at White Mound, near
Nebo, Oklahoma, we applied an old trick to a new site. In the past,
when collecting in the Oligocene of Nebraska, it was common to raid
anthills for tiny teeth and bones brought to the surface by the ants.

From about a tablespoon of White Mound anthill material we have
separated out these mini fossils. We still have a half-full gallon-size
ziplock bag to search through.
