11-08-08 Lodi Fossils

The Future Scientists went retro this weekend, as in 350 million years ago Mississippian Period retro, when the in-thing was having a shell or tube-feet if you were living large in Ohio. Here, the Future Scientists can be seen prying ancient sea-life loose from rocks in this creek bed at Lodi City Park in Medina County.

The Future Scientists were able to find many brachiopods, bryozoans and crinoid stems. Other non-fossilized, living wildlife were also found, and they will achieve their fifteen minutes of fame in a future blog.

Brachiopod city!
