The Burgess Shale contains the best record we have of Cambrian animal fossils. One of the earliest fossil beds in the world. And it is special because it is containing imprints of soft bodied animals.. If you can call those little guys animals. It is located in the Canadian Rocks of British Columbia. It is 505 years old!! And it was discovered by the great Paleontologist Charles Walcott. 

Below are some images of the fossils found! 


Here are all the creatures playing! 

This is what the excavation site looks like!
