Another fun trip to the Montour Fossil Pit Yesterday

Recommended Posts

Had another successful trip yesterday to Montour. It’s  only my second time going but I really enjoy this place. Figured I’d share my finds with all of you!

 

Partial stem?

Clam that was still in the rock, this one actually was nice compared to what I normally find

4 small Pleurodictyum I found, top right is still pretty well encased

A really nice shell, possibly oyster?

I still haven’t been able to find a full trilobite but another decent partial!!

 

Not 100% sure on what this is, some kind of plant? I was thinking part of like a sea lily maybe.

By far my favorite find, sadly the one half did break as you can see in the second picture.

I wasn’t sure of what it was but it was really interesting to me. I thought it could be a squid but I’m not really knowledgeable on this yet so any input is appreciated! Thanks!

Nice finds- A suggestion would be to ID your finds for the members who view your post.
