Whoa!

The most spectacular sighting on this rip-rap of fossiliferous rocks, first spotted by Molly. These segments are about 2″ wide. Is this, as fossil-co-explorer Paul thinks, a Eurypterid or sea scorpion. It reminded us all of lobster.

(Eurypterus remipes is the NY state fossils: “these rare fossils occur in great numbers in rocks found near Buffalo, Erie County,” according to the NY State Museum.)
