Sea slug?
by: Anonymous

As a missouri local I know that missouri was once a sea, I'm not sure, but I think it's a sea slug of some sort.

Kansas City Fossil
by: Doug

This one has me stumped!

The area around Kansas City, MO Is full of fossils. The rocks are from the Pennsylvanian Epoch of the Carboniferous Period around 300 million years ago. The fossils found here are mostly from invertebrate marine animals like brachiopods, crinoids, clams, sponges, corals, bryozoans, trilobites and gastropods.

Your specimen does not look like any of these.

I am hoping that someone will recognize your fossil and comment here.
