Loxoplocus Gastropod (Snail)

Here is a Loxoplocus bowdeni gastropod from Trimble County, Kentucky. It was found during a KYANA field trip in May 2008. It is about 4 cm in length. Also the genus is now known as Paupospira.

Falls of the Ohio State Park

The Falls of the Ohio Indiana State Park in Clarksville, Indiana is a GREAT place to visit if you are in the Louisville, Kentucky area. I think it costs maybe $3 for admission to the visitor center and they have some neat displays about natural history of the surrounding area.

A partial view of the fossil beds you can explore while there.
