A Lilydale Brachiopod

Posted by Kirk

Time for another fossil. I'm taking a bit of a break from blogging as I get some other things in line. So, in the mean time I'm posting a bunch of the fossils I'm photographing for a guide I'm making for the kids in the summer camp I'm teaching. This one is Hesperorthis tricernia. As I've mentioned before, I'm in the process of giving these common names to help kids learn about them. I've named this one the Western Three-hundred. It has a very distinct shape in profile. It is a pretty cool fossil to find.
