Mineral Wells Fossil Park

Photo taken Sunday, September 9, 2012 at Mineral Wells Fossil Park in north Texas. The park has Pennsylvanian Period fossils dated to be over 300 million years old. You can look for and collect these tiny fossils. Most of the fossils we've seen are under an inch long. The largest we've seen are a few inches long. Some are longer, but broken into segments. There is a nice chart at the entrance that helps identify what you've found.
