Since I live a scant 25

Since I live a scant 25 miles from Dayton, home of the Scopes Monkey trial, our state fossil can only be 6 to 10 thousand years old. Looking at the picture, I think it could be true.

Not to be pedantic about

Not to be pedantic about this whole thing, but TN was a shallow sea for many millions of years. Which is why all our homes are built on limestone (a cruel joke, since we're now in the tornado belt and nobody's got a basement).

Sucks that we don't get really cool fossils like icthyosaurs, tho.
