Eocene Leaf Fossil with Insect Holes


Unidentified leaf fossil found in the Florisant formation of Teller County Colorado USA. This fossil is special in that it has three places on the leaf where there is predation. The darker areas show signs of the leaf repairing itself. The fossil dates to the Eocene Epoch. The leaf is about 3.5 cm in length.
