ID on possible coral, snail?, and mystery 'spine' like objects

Recommended Posts

Recently completed a lengthy set of walkabouts in the lower Pennsylvanian. I have a lot that I can pseudo-identify and am comfortable leaving them alone for now. OTH, I am hopeful someone with the skills will provide some helpful nudges in assigning more accurate names to the following:

 

I believe this is a coral. This is about 4" tall and 3.5" wide

Zoom in

I'm calling it a snail but I know that is not correct. Max length is 1.5"

And then these mystery spine-like objects on a sort of mash plate. It is hard to tell but the long intermittent one,  swooping from lower left to upper right, maybe indeed be a single long strand 3" long

Thank you for helping me to continue to expand my knowledge. I just took the time to examine the sponge root tuft specimen further. The specimen is about 1.5" thick. Three of the sides have tufts exposed down 1/2-5/8" from the top surface. The fourth side is a gray mass with zero fossils of any kind. I will study to see if I can determine how the sponge may have been positioned in relation to the tufts.

 

Thanks again!

You are welcome!
Hope it doesn't hurt your consideration to put a click on the proper area for those who were involved in the determination.

Among other things that is something I don't know how to do...will need to check the pinned items for how-to's.

My oversight. I just never noticed it until I logged into my acct and looked for it. From henceforth I shall use the shark tooth.
