British boy finds 480 million-year-old fossil

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

A six-year-old boy has found a fossil up to 488 million years old while digging in his garden with a fossil-hunting set he received for Christmas.

Siddak Sing Jhamat, known as Sid, had been digging in his garden "for worms and things like pottery and bricks," he said.

"I just came across this rock which looked a bit like a horn, and thought it could be a tooth or a claw or a horn, but it was actually a piece of coral which is called horn coral. I was really excited about what it really was."

If kids finding common fossils is news @Piney's_Little_Ninja  should be in the paper daily. 

I want to know about the drunkin rampage with the crazy in the red Austin Allegro in Birmingham. :o
