Trilobite: (Elrathia kingii)Trilobitesare arthropods that lived from 521 to 252 million years ago. They come in manyshapes and sizes. Some would roll into a ball. This Specimen is an Elrathia trilobitefrom the Cambrian of Utah, 513 to 498 million years old.
Brachiopod: (Rhynchonella sp.) Brachiopods, alsocalled lamp shells, are animals with two shells like clams that filter food outof the water. They are not at all related to clams, however. They firstappeared approximately 550 million years ago. This specimen is from theSilurian of Morocco, 444 to 419 million years old.
Horn Coral: (Turbophyllum sp.)Coralsare filter feeding marine organisms with stone like exoskeletons that make uplarge reefs. Most corals are made up of many individual small organisms calledpolyps. Horn corals are an extinct group of corals that only had one largepolyp that lived from 488 to 251 million years ago before going extinct. Thisspecimen is from the Late Mississippian of Millard County, Utah 326 to 318million years old.
Crinoidstem:Crinoidsare animals related to starfish. Crinoids first appeared about 480 millionyears ago. They look like flowers and are sometimes called sea lilies. The“flower”, called a calyx, had multiple arms that would filter food particlesfrom the water and put them in the mouth in the center of the arms. They attachthemselves via a stem and roots to the bottom of the sea floor. This specimenis a partial stem from the Pennsylvanian of north central Texas, approximately300 million years old.
Ammonite:Ammonitesare Cephalopods, like squid and octopi, that had a coiled shell. They livedfrom 409 to 66 million years ago and ranged in size from less than an inch toover six feet (two meters) across depending on the species. This specimen isfrom the Cretaceous of Madagascar about 110 million years old.
MosasaurTooth:Mosasaursare huge carnivorous marine reptiles that lived alongside dinosaurs from 101 to66 million years ago. Some approached 60 feet (18 meters) in length! Theyaren't dinosaurs but are close relatives of snakes and lizards. This specimenis from the Cretaceous of Morocco, about 75 million years old.
DinosaurBone: Dinosaurs firstappeared about 233 million years ago. They then diversified into a variety ofshapes and sizes from smaller than a house cat to as large as a whale. Thisspecimen is from the Late Cretaceous of the Central United States about 79 to66 million years old. Dinosaurs alive at this time include the Ceratopsianslike Triceratops, Duck Billed Hadrosaurs like Edmontosaurus, Dome Headed Pachycephalosaurs,Armored Ankylosaurs, and a variety of Carnivorous dinosaurs such as Raptors andT-Rex! Although these would all go extinct 66 million years ago one group ofdinosaurs, birds, still lives to this day!
Crow SharkTooth: (Squalicorax pristodontus)Crowsharks are medium sized sharks that live and died with the dinosaurs. Like allsharks, they had many rows of teeth and would shed old ones to be replaced bynew ones. This is the largest species of Crow shark and grew to lengths of 16feet (5 meters). This specimen from the Cretaceous of Morocco, about 72 millionyears old.
PetrifiedWood:Petrifiedwood is a special type of fossilized wood that occurs when the organicmolecules in the wood are replaced by minerals, usually quartz. This specimenis from the Eocene of College Station, Texas, 50 to 40 million years old.
Gastropod:(Eoconus sauridens)Gastropods (Snails) are mollusks with coiled shells that move along theground or sea floor. They eat plants or actively hunt other animals, dependingon the species, and first appeared 540 million years ago. When a snail dies,its shell usually dissolves leaving only an internal mold of the shell. Thisspecimen is rare in that the original shell was preserved. It is from themiddle Eocene of College Station, Texas, about 42 million years old.
Stingray Barb: Stingrays are close relatives ofsharks. There most famous feature is a venomous barb on their tail that theyuse to defend themselves from larger predators like sharks and dolphins. Thisspecimen is from the late Miocene or Pliocene of Florida, 10 to 2.5 millionyears old.
Columbian Mammoth Molar Fragment:(Mammuthus columbi)Mammothsare a type of elephant with long curved tusks. The Columbian Mammoth lived inthe central and southern part of North America during the Pleistocene from 1.5million to 11 thousand years ago. It stood up to 13 feet tall (4 meters) andweighed up to 11 tons, larger than its infamous cousin the Woolly Mammoth (11feet tall 6.5 tons). Due to their warmer southern habitat, Columbian Mammothsalso had much less hair than Woollies. Mammoth Molars are made of multipleplates held together by cement. This specimen is molar plate fragment from thePleistocene of Florida,1 million to 11 thousand years old.All of my items come with a Certificate of Authenticity!
