The very first photo above shows the Saugatuck Natural Harbor Area adjacent to Oval Beach on Lake Michigan. I have found many fossils in both locations which I can usually identify, but sometimes not!
SIDE NOTE: The grass growing on the dune is called Marram Grass or American Beach Grass. This grass actually stabilizes the West Michigan Dunes along Lake Michigan and assists in building them upwards along with the dominate westerly winds pushing the sand inland. The winds also reveal so many of the fossils I have found that I like to share with you.
I decided to post these photos of interesting mystery fossils, if that is indeed what they are. Some simply intrigued me, for example, #2 is a perfect circle inside the stone and #4 is something I have found before in similar shape. Hopefully, someone will glance upon these and help identify them. Maybe even you! Please make any suggestions that could provide possible answers!
Side Note: The last fossil, Mystery Fossil 5, was not found on the beach and I don’t even remember where I got it. I believe it could be a trace millipede fossil.
