We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Fryer

Publish date:

In August, Laura Roan went for a walk in the woods of Pennsylvania to look for fish fossils and arrow heads when she thought she saw a turtle shell sticking out of the mud.

What she found was a petrified megalumus clam from the Age of Fishes believed to be 380 million years old.

It took four men using a refrigerator cart to move it out of the woods. The clam now has a new home at the Rocks Off Shop on Pine Street in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, where it is prominently displayed in the window.

You can read more about it on the Williamsport Sun-Gazette website.
