Samurai posted a topic in Fossil IDTimer period: Pennsylvanian Location: Missouri Formation: Not exactly sure. Found in an abandoned rock pile containing limestone from the Iola Limestone Still it is a possibility it came from limestone from the Upper Winterset limestone. Hello! I found this nautiloid a long time ago and it was too heavy for me to carry the chunk of limestone that contained it, but before I left I got a few pictures of the specimen! Once I observed the photo a few weeks later I had the biggest regret of my life as it might contain an impression of soft tissue! I don't know If my mind is playing tricks on me but I think it might contain soft tissue. The thought is driving me crazy since I am always doubtful when I find fossils like these and due to my own lack of experience. Can anyone confirm if it does contain soft tissue? Is this a tentacle? or my imagination? Here are photos I edited in photoshop in order to see if I can make the features more visible (Above) Added more saturation and darkened (above) Added saturation and brightened the image I would like to note I have returned to the area but I have had no luck in finding it again and these are the clearest images I could obtain and I apologize for the blurriness Here are the images in their natural file size and some additional images: https://imgur.com/a/80wzODc If possible I would also love to know its species but I find that unlikely since it is bisected and poorly preserved shell wise.
Samurai posted a topic in Fossil IDHello! this is one of my weirdest things I have found at this location, I believe it might be a fragment from a fin spine? A piece from an Echinoid? Something else? I would love to know what it is and what species this came from! Some information on the area: Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Most likely from a member of the Iola Limestone What makes this one of the most bizarre fossils I have found is the circular pattern on the fossil itself, as I have not seen anything like this in the area before. backside Pictures in their natural file size: https://imgur.com/a/qUWY0gB
