My Initial Thought Was La Salle County Crinoid, BUT.............


Recommended Posts

When I found this, my initial thoughts were crinoidal. But as can be seen from this gray green section of the Bond Formation, crinoids have the characteristic look that I am used to.

 

Normal Crinoid:

My unknown is black and the "arms" are bumpy:

Makes sense!! I was hoping someone would say starfish, similar to this. One can only dream!! Will mark it as Fecal Matter and tag @GeschWhat.

Based on my experience collecting that unit, I think this is just an interesting shaped pyrite deposit.

Really, late to reply - sorry, Mike. That is one nice “crappy” four stall you found. It is a thing of beauty.  Did you find it in MN?

:envy:
 

Congrats on the sea star, too!

Next time!  You did find the poop though? Was that found in MN?

 

My daughter made a video of @Bev and I In her outdoor shower. She’s the T. Rex & I’m the triceratops.

@GeschWhat, Sorry for the late response. First of all, the coprolite was found in Oglesby, Illinois....Pennsylvanian. If you would like it, I can look for it and mail it to you. 

Otherwise, GREAT VIDEO. I am not sure who looks better, you or Bev!!
