Seemed Like Clam Chowder

Recommended Posts

Nimravis

Today was another day of going through some Mazon Creek concretions, it reminds me of the days in the past when people would collect at a place they called Chowder Flats because of all the clams that were found. The concretions that I opened today were ones that I collected from an area across from Shadow Lakes- the whole area around there was Pit 4. I was surprised at the number of single or multiple clams that were in this bucket- there was also a couple nice pieces of flora / bark.

I know, they are okay. Even though I have a lot of great Mazon Creek fossils, my favorite has always been the seldom collected and often neglected, Essexella asherae Jellyfish. I never leave them behind and have many great examples that I would never part with.
