By the sea in the vicinity of the city of Cincinnati in Ohio, local scientists discovered a mysterious fossil creature. Fossils represent a set of elements of a rounded form. If they get together, the result is something that has size 2 by 1 meter.

While experts find it difficult to define what is — an animal or plant. Scientists have put forward different versions.

Some believe that the fossil was found — a huge algae. Others believe that it is a jellyfish or a unicellular organism. A third group of researchers believe that the fossil "monster" is not so terrible: perhaps it is just fragments of ancient coral or invertebrate channel reported Discovery.
