Here is a brachiopod found at the Louisville Science Center.

It is a Devonian period brachiopod and was labeled Paraspirifer acuminatus.

Favosites epidermata Coral

Here is a Devonian coral found at a display in the Louisville Science Center located in Louisville, Kentucky. It is nice they have some of this coral because the Falls of the Ohio State Park located across the Ohio River has a lot of it.

The display identified this as Favosites (Emmonsia) epidermata.
