Busycon is a genus of very large edible sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks, in the family Buccinidae. These snails are commonly known in the U.S. as whelks or Busycon whelks. Busycon comes from the Greek: bous meaning cow and sykon meaning fig; translating to large fig. This is one of the few genera of gastropods in which the shell may coil either to the right or the left. These fossils date to the Cretaceous Period of the Mesozoic Era (65 million to 136 million years ago)...

Turritella Molds and Leperditia Molds Turritella molds are the corkscrew like cavities. This species was a cephalopod that crawled along the bottom of the sea looking for bits of food. These organisms would have lived in the Triassic period (with the early dinosaurs) making them 190 million to 225 million years old. Leperditia molds look clam like but are crustaceans distantly related to lobsters, crabs and barnacles...

Ecphora is a close, extinct relative of Morex, and may have shared the same feeding habits. If so, Ecphora would have been a predator, boring holes in the shells of bivalves or other snails. A gland at the foot would have secreted a special chemical to soften the prey’s shell. A set of tiny teeth, called the radula, would have rasped first the shell and then the victim’s flesh. This example is of good quality with the tip worn down...

An outstanding example of a carbon film of a fern from the Paleozoic Era, Carboniferous / Pennsylvanian Period. Very rarely organisms containing a high content of carbon (i.e. plants) are subjected to extreme pressure and heat. These conditions force all gas and liquid from the organism leaving a thin film of carbon residue, forming a silhouette of the original organism. Overall size measures 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Age: 300 million to 360 million years old. Location: King George, VA.
