My son and I found this bone fragment today on one of our adventures. The tide in the area was low, wind not too harsh. We were in an area on the Onslow County Beach, NC. We were able to pick up some fossilized shells and other specimens in our short 15 minutes there at this particular spot. It was chilly, but we were layered up! Just curious about an identification of the specimen. I contacted a dear friend and we both think croc or turtle. Any insight is greatly appreciated. The specimen measures about three inches in length. Libby
Hi everyone! I Have not posted in a long time. I am going to be better and get back involved with my FF friends this new year. I have missed everyone and I am really working on getting back into my fossil excursions and specimen research. I just wanted to share a some of the adventures I had this year and I included my son on a few. He is only 7, so I can not take him to the big quarries just yet. I only went on a few trips this year, but each one was special and so full of friendship, fossil hunting and splendid moments of reuniting with friends whom share the same interest. Having my son along with me was priceless. Teaching him all about North Carolina paleontology and respect for nature has been amazing. I have been doing that with him since he was three years old. So, he already states he wants be a paleontologist or fireman. Love that! There were also beautiful discoveries of some gorgeous flora and fauna of the North Carolina wetlands and beaches. The fossils have been sparse, but just getting out in the field once in a while is the fine by me. Please comment if I have an identification incorrect and let me know about any identifications of some of the flora. Happy new Year! Libby View of part of the Castle Hayne Quarry, NC. Conus sp.
