Godzillus is the tentative name of a 450-million-year-old fossil discovered in a rock layer near Covington, Kentucky by amateur paleontologist Ron Fine, of the Cincinnati Dry Dredgers. The reassembled fossil had a roughly elliptical shape with multiple lobes totaling almost 7 feet in length and is believed by Fine to have been nine-feet tall when upright. Others, such as David L. Meyer, of the University of Cincinnati geology department, believe it to be a fossilized mat of algae.
