Ediacaran Biota Keychain

$28.75

mini-dickinsonia.pngThe latest addition to our collection of fossil formation keychains celebrates the enigmatic lifeforms known as the Ediacaran Biota. These otherworldly organisms are from the first known flowering of multicellular life on Earth, and have been the source of endless fascination and speculation.

Ediacaran lifeforms are found in rock formations worldwide, including such famous locales as Mistaken Point in Newfoundland, Doushantuo in China, and the Ediacara Hills in Australia, Paleontologists organize these fossils into three groups, known as the Avalon, White Sea, and Nama Assemblages. Each assemblage represents a group of organisms that are typically found together due to the time-frame and the biome in which they once lived. Each "page" in this carefully researched keychain represents fossils typical of one of these assemblages.

An enormous variety of fossils are shown, from Charnia, and other members of its mysterious group known as the rangeomorphs, to cloudina, the first known reef-forming organism. The keychain comes with an attractive diagram and key so that you can easily identify each fossil. A unique educational keepsake for paleontologists, fossil collectors, and anyone interested in the early development of life!
