Re: SV: Favorite Paleotrivia?



Something similar to the grebe fossil is also true of the oldest vertebrate 
fossil from Florida (at least as of 1963), a Cretaceous aquatic turtle 
recovered during drilling operations near Lake Okeechobee from a depth of 9,210 
feet (2,810 m).  If you feel like downloading a 9 mb pdf for one paragraph, 
it's mentioned briefly in Florida's Fossil Mammals, p. 5:
