"Every seashell has a story to tell if you're listening,
But underneath every shell there's a story as well if you've heard enough of the sea.
Then everything on the top will just suddenly stop seeming interesting,
So listen now to the sound of the things that are found under the ground."

(Metal Detector, They Might Be Giants)

A couple of years ago Alex Liu found some remarkable trails in the Mistaken Point Formation, just above the E surface which houses so many beautiful Ediacaran body fossils.

What is so remarkable about finding trails? 

Well authenticated trace fossils are not known from rocks of this age (565 Million years ago).

There is little evidence that Ediacaran macrofossils could move.
