 Mysterious 'Monster' Discovered By Amateur Palaeontologist

Around 450 million years ago, shallow seas covered the Cincinnati region and harboured one very large and now very mysterious organism. Despite its size, no one has ever found a fossil of this "monster" until its discovery by an amateur palaeontologist last year.
The fossilised specimen, a roughly elliptical shape with multiple lobes, totalling almost seven feet in length, will be unveiled at the North-Central Section 46th Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of America, April 24, in Dayton, Ohio.
