How about some recent trilobites?


Recommended Posts

I haven't seen hardly any Ordivician-related posts for a while so here's my input.

 

I was out collecting yesterday off Interstate 75. Nothing all that good had occurred until I found this flexy...

Nearly 5 years ago I found the chunk of rock (in the middle of my hand) that appeared to contain some amount of trilobite

I never expected much so it was ignored until this past Feb when I finally prepped it. I was happily surprised at what finally appeared. It has a few blemishes and is nearly 100% complete.
