Two cool fossil finds

Ed Yong has a nice article up about a new fossil find. This one is megafauna that probably wouldn’t be very charismatic up close – a fifty foot, two thousand pound + snake.

Over at Wired Science, there’s an article about some fossilized traces that represent the earliest evidence of multicellular life yet found – a chemical that’s produced only by sponges that’s turned up in 635 million year old rocks.
