Interesting Fossils Finds Today

After work this morning I decided to go for a quick trip to Hurricane Creek Recreation Area in La Vergne, Tn which is just one of the many access points at percy Priest Lake.

I wanted to try to find something before the heat kicked in. I found a few small things which turned out to be very interesting.

This plate reminds me of filigree. I'm thinking it could be worm burrows.

Here is a great little shell hash plate

This one didn't look like much, I found one like it once before but it wasn't as defined as this is. You can see the cross sections of gastropods and cephalopods and more.

Here is the biggest chunk of Beekite I've found. I just love the texture of this stuff.

Last but not least this little critter has me puzzled.

I believe the unknown is a Flexicalyme trilobite thorax.

The beekite is very cool.
