Fossil Friday!

This week on Fossil Friday, I have a terrible head cold—achoo!

In my delirium, between sneezes, hot tea, and blowing my nose, I was able to scrounge up a fossil that is a perfect represention for exactly how stuffed up my head feels right now. This picture is stuffed to the brim with one type of organism!

What were these noodle-looking animals and when do they date from? I'll give you a single hint—they were found in what is now Santa Barbara County, California. Surf's up!
