Straight-Bodied Cephalopod

On Lake Michigan’s Left Coast in Wisconsin, thousands of ghostly images appear in the millions of rocks on the beach. They are mostly highly eroded, nearly unrecognizable fossils. Imagine my surprise when, one day, this hunk of limestone appeared, incredibly clear, fossil side up. I was astonished. This fossil impression, with its distinctive parallel ridges, is that of a straight-bodied cephalopod. An odd little creature.

Straight-bodied cephalopod, probably from the Devonian Period (419.2–358.9 million years ago). Available in framed, glossy photographs or mounted canvas prints, 5×7, 8×10, 11×14, or larger.
