    • @lauren-darpel awesome find, thanks for posting! We’d love to add it to our research database if you wouldn’t mind completing a few more steps. First, you’ll have to fill out classification. There is a taxon wizard which should make this pretty easy, just put in class Gastropoda and it should fill the rest in for you. Next, you’ll need to add geochronology and lithostratigraphy. For this you’ll need a geologic map, I recommend this website or the app (the latter is a little better functioning): https://rockd.org/explore. If you press on the exact place you found it, it will tell you the formation and the age of the rock. The age of the rock goes in geochronology and the formation goes in lithostratigraphy. Let me know if you have any questions or would like any help, and tag me when you are done so I can mark it research grade. Thanks again for posting!!

    • Hi mason! I tried to fill out those fields as best I could, but im struggling on the lithostratigraphy part.

    • Cool find!
