CARBONIFEROUS BRACHIOPOD

325 million years old

Watersaw Rake, near Stoney Middleton, Derbyshire
  

A productid brachiopod on a small block of grey limestone. The shell has been naturally weathered out by rainwater flowing through fissures in the limestone. Another brachiopod is present on the back.

Brachiopods are marine animals that look like small clams, but they have a different anatomy and are not closely related to clams or any other molluscs. They lived on the sea floor and were much more abundant during the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic eras than they are today.

This example is known as a productid brachiopod.
