Pentamerus Brachiopod Mold

There are some molds of a Pentamerus sp. brachiopod fossil found in Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, USA. For some reason we I see these types of fossils, I think of a pig's hoof. These fossils date to the Silurian Period. A very nice write up on these types of fossils can be found on the Wooster Geologists Blog. Thanks to Nathan for the fossil.
