IMG_5023.thumb.jpg.ec736df06ec198986fee14d4d9ac5d6b.jpgThe Quarantine of 2020 made for frustrated fossil fiends all over the world. The Aurora (North Carolina, USA) Fossil Museum came up with a wonderful way to stay afloat and keep people's sanity at the same time: Fossil Hunter's Emergency Survival Kits. Each kit contained two gallon-sized plastic bags of micro matrix from the adjacent Nutrien (Formerly known as Lee Creek) Phosphate Mine. The mine strata are a mixture of Early Miocene, Pliocene and Pleistocene layers, which are sifted together extensively before fossil hunters can get a look. The fossils from my kit, as of the time I began this album, are all Pliocene/Pleistocene. They must have ben scooping out the upper layers that day.
