Your find  received my vote.  I was pleasantly surprised when your name was mentioned as the winner. I try and NOT know who is entering a find in the fossil of the month contest. It has a tendency to affect my vote. And WHO submits it should not enter into the equation. Very nice find!!!!

I had the privilege of being take out to the Hungry Hollow site this week by a couple of great TFF members (thanks!) and I found one small chunk of tabulate coral and what appear to be a few small tabulate bryozoan colonies. It is an interesting place to hunt (and hard work while splitting rock in the unseasonably hot sunny weather looking for Greenops). I would have been overjoyed to have found such a nice tabulate coral with so much going on in the way of epibionts. Congrats on a great find. :fistbump:

 

 

Cheers.
