TENNESSEE: Cretaceous, Ripley Formation

World famous sites of the Ripley Formation can be found in Tennessee, containing hundreds of species with very good conservated shells. The site near Coon Creek is the most famous. You need authorisation to visit this site from the Pink Palace Museum in Memphis. We visited this site for some hours in 1995.
