Hello everyone, my name is Kathi, but “Fossillady” fits me nicely since I started collecting so many fossils and discovering the amazing ways in which the plants and animals once lived. It has turned into a fun and rewarding hobby! Please join me in some new fossil finds and feel free to leave a comment or ask a question about your own discoveries. Happy fossil hunting!
My Fossil Story From the Start
The very first fossil I ever owned was given to me by my late husband, Joseph. It turned out to be a Calymene, celebra trilobite shown below. The next thing I knew, his friend donated an entire collection for me to share with my classroom. I was enchanted by the fossils and wanted to learn as much about them as I could. I even created posters and drawings of what they looked like as living creatures. My students were super intrigued when I presented them! I’ve been hooked ever since and continue to add amazing samples to my collection.
