Louisville Coral Fossil Exhibit

A new display case at the Falls of the Ohio State Park has been unveiled with a variety of Silurian and Devonian coral fossils from around the Louisville Kentucky area. My cousin Kenny Popp has loaned them to the park for a temporary exhibit. A lot of the specimens are museum grade and took quite a bit of time to prepare for display.

The fossil shown in the picture below (gray one on the left) took weeks to extract using gallons and gallons of acid.

If you are in the Louisville Kentucky area consider visiting the Falls of the Ohio State Park and seeing this display.
