I had a chance to visit Penn-Dixie today and one of my first finds stumped me. It has the signature porous inside of a bone. It’s black. It has radiating lines down one side. Folks running the place thought it was likely a piece a placoderm armor, making it a rare find. Apologies for the pictures. Once again I find myself in a hotel with my phone. Thickness is a bit over a quarter inch. Length is around 1.75”. Couldn’t make the phone focus well on the marrow. Does placoderm armor have marrow?
For the past decade, my eyes have been fixed on going to Penn Dixie. After moving to Ottawa with my wife, a trip down to the home of the bugs became a possibility. This past Monday, we finally had the opportunity to visit. It was a 6 hour drive and we only had a couple of hours to spare, but we found a couple of good pieces. @DevonianDigger was an amazing host and guide showing us around to the most productive layers. I may have caught the Penn Dixie Bug (pun intended) . Came away with a couple of rollers and a 95% complete Greenops! I'm already itching to go back next spring! Here are a few pictures.
Hey all! I will be posting an update soon, but I recently took a quick trip to Penn Dixie to find a few bugs. Came home with quite a few little specimens. I have a question for the prep masters among us. I live in a very clean apartment (due to my wife) and have very little options for prepping the trilos I found there. What tools or techniques would you recommend that don't involve sand blasting or compressors?
Hey friends! Work is taking my wife and I to Burlington, CA at the end of August. Penn Dixie has ALWAYS been on my bucket list. Therefore, we've decided that we will take a day trip down there! I'd love to organize a trip with other fossil enthusiasts! We are thinking around August 28th or so. Let us know if you'd like to form a little band of troops to head down there!
