Fossil Calamites- giant horsetail of the Carboniferous

Fossil Calamites- giant horsetail of the Carboniferous

This partial Megalodon tooth is absolutely MASSIVE at 6" in length. A tooth of this size would have come from a prehistoric, mega-shark in the 50+ foot size range. A true whale eating monster of the Miocene seas. It still has sharp serrations along the edge of the tooth. This beautiful bluish grey and black, partial tooth has been cut flat on one edge and polished into a one-of-a-kind paper weight. The mesial side maintains it's razor sharp serrations

Steneosaurus bollensis - Steneosaurus is an extinct genus of teleosaurid crocodyliform from the Early Jurassic to Middle Jurassic (Toarcian to Callovian). Fossil specimens have been found in England, France, Germany, Switzerland and Morocco. The largest species, S. heberti, reached up to 5 m (16.5 ft) long, though 2.5–3.5 m was far more common Species in this genus are traditionally classed into two skull groups: longirostrine (long, narrow jaws) and brevirostrine (short, broad jaws)

fósil de Lepidodendron Lepidodendron dominated the Carboniferous coal swamps, and is thought to have reached heights of 40 metres. It is not closely related to the trees of today; instead, Lepidodendron is a lycopsid, more closely related to modern club mosses and quillworts. The thick trunk formed a pole, which had no branches, apart from the crown at the very top of the mature plant. The scale-like pattern on the trunk was produced by leaf scars (cushions where leaflets fell away). It was…

An armoured jawless fish (a Cephalaspis, which is a kind of osteostracan). This creature evolved as it adapted to the transition from open sea to freshwater conditions in the Ludlow area towards the end of the Silurian. It had not evolved at the time the rocks beneath Whitcliffe were laid down, but fossils of the animal have been found in the younger rocks just to the east, downstream of Ludford Bridge.

"Welcome home to one of the rarest trilobites in the world. Thanks to a gift by Robert Hazen, this fossil of a new Apianurus species is now a part of the Museum's collection. This beautiful fossil was discovered by paleontologist Jake Skabelund in 2011 at the Walcott-Rust Quarry in New York." --Deep Time at the Smithsonian Facebook Page:

Annularia sp. are the leaf whorls of an extinct horsetail. These horsetails (Sphenopsida) were arborescent (tree-like) and grew to a height of 31 feet. Fossil found in Illinois

Seymouria, Permian period.  Technically an amphibian, the Seymoria may be one of the first reptile species.  It had evolved many of the traits characteristic of reptilian life.

Seymouria was a reptile-like labyrinthodont from the early Permian of N. It was small, only 2 ft long. Seymouria was well adapted to life on land, with many reptilian features.
