[8] Putative "burrows" dating as far back as 1,100 million years may have been made by animals which fed on the undersides of microbial mats, which would have shielded them from a chemically unpleasant ocean; [9] however their uneven width and tapering ends make a biological origin so difficult to defend [10] that even the original author no longer believes they are authentic. [11] The first evidence of burrowing which is widely accepted dates to the Ediacaran (Vendian) period, around 560 million years ago [ verification needed ].
