Finding Fossils

Post by Athena on Sun Aug 11, 2013 12:56 pm

Lily and I went to a slate quarry today to check if we can find some fossils. We were able to borrow hammers and chisels and started digging. It was real fun and we found some interesting stuff. Here you can see some of our findings. OK







I hope I can convice Lily to do that again some other times. Friends

That's cool! Do you know what they are fossils of?

Very cool. You did great, normally you're lucky to find one thing. Well done.

I was looking for dinosaurs! Nothing came up. These are apparently some shells and maybe some small lizards? At least I would like to think they are, I would be pissed to find out I was digging on that sun for some 2 year old shrimps. Mad

Lily... laugh 

I am not sure, Elaine but I think this was a little ammonoidea graveyard. They look similar to what we found.

Some of the fossils look like leaves.

How cool! My Jackie and I regularly search for ancient sharks' teeth on the west coast of Florida. I'll take a picture one of these days and post it. It gives me something to do on the beach.
