Large-animal fossils in carboniferous strata

Pretty funny post, even though it was a day late for the official
"fools day".  My favorite sentence from the page was:

"The coal beds and seams in Pa. are all
Carboniferous, supposedly the age of coal formation prior to the
triassic and other dinosaur ages, and animal life in the Carboniferous
is supposed to have consisted of invertibrates, insects, fish, and
amphibeans at  best.".

My grandmother's buried in Pennsylvania.  I guess that makes her
Carboniferous, although my mother insists she wasn't that old.  Mom
must be one of those evil evolutionists.
