Venezuela: Holocene till Pliocene.

We visited Isla Margarita in 1995. There are a lot of fossil deposits outcropping at the beaches. We were not able to gain acces to the proper geological informatian. We give you pictures of the fossils there what so ever. It gives an impression anyway. If the formation is known to us, it is mentioned below the pictures. In most cases, however, we must let you have your own opinion. We mention the locality in stead. We obtained some fossils from the mainland too by swapping.
