Dam Project Fossils
In this Monday, June 30, 2014, a scallop fossil is photographed on a hillside at the Calaveras Dam replacement project in Fremont, Calif. Giant teeth from a 40-foot-long shark and portions of what could turn out to be an entire whale skeleton are among the hundreds of fossils being carefully unearthed at a dam construction site in Silicon Valley.
