  Can you identify this in the given fossils without utilizing disputed
(and frankly, unproven) techniques? This is not to say to degrade your

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
