A Foraminifer From The Moreno Formation, Califonria

Three different views of the same foraminifer--greatly magnified--from the lower Paleocene section of the upper Cretaceous to Paleocene Moreno Formation. Collected by a microfossil enthusiast from a locality near the western edge of California's Great Central Valley. Called scientifically, Eponides ingramensis--among the first sea creatures on Earth to live in a world without dinosaurs. Photograph courtesy a specific scientific publication.
