What Can I Find
The most common fossil found at Mineral Wells Fossil Park are the stalks of crinoids (sea lilies).Â While crinoids may look like weird plants, they are actually animals.Â There are likely dozens of species found here, each with their own design and ornamentation.Â Some even have spikes.
