Fossil Friday

This week on Fossil Friday, we have a pretty sizable fossil from the Silurian period—about 430 million years ago. This specimen was collected in Eastern Iowa. It’s an unusual soft-bodied fossil from a site with many unidentified fossil organisms. The first person to identify this specimen wins bragging rights for the week!
