Trilobite (Phacops rana) was designated the state fossil of Pennsylvania in an elementary school science class campaigned for this prehistoric invertebrate.

Steneosaurus bollensis - Steneosaurus is an extinct genus of teleosaurid crocodyliform from the Early Jurassic to Middle Jurassic (Toarcian to Callovian).

Ammonites at the Smithsonian. Originating from within the bactritoid nautiloids, the ammonoid cephalopods first appeared in the Devonian (circa 400 million years ago) and became extinct at the close of the Cretaceous (65.5 Ma) along with the dinosaurs.

Kronosaurus fossil.  Can you even imagine what this looked like when it was swimming through the ocean?

Kronosaurus meaning "lizard of Kronos" is an extinct genus of short-necked pliosaur. It was among the largest pliosaurs, and is named after the leader of the Greek Titans, Cronus.

Over the years the kids have found a lot of fossils. I should find a nice way to display them.

Fossils - ammonites, trilobites, brachiopods, oh my!
