This fossil formation found on coastal cliffs surrounding parts of Leopard Island was exposed by the uplifting of land caused by tectonic activity and the flow of water from the ocean and Leopard’s watershed. It contains the remains of florapods, krakowpedes, and many other kinds of complex organisms which thrived in the mid to late Huggian but were wiped out by the end-Huggian extinction event. A few clades which survived to the modern day, namely binucleid worms and crystal flora, are also represented. Soft-bodied organisms are flattened, and those with hard shells are often broken or crushed; the fossils themselves are of poor quality, and very little 3-dimensional structure is preserved.

Fossil remains of the following species can be found here:
