I had another great day at Brownies. A bit windy and much cooler than you would expect for late April, but this Spring has been chillier than usual here in Maryland. There was no crowd today, which was very odd, but I am not complaining! Not many big teeth out, but I did manage to find my personal best today, a Mako that measures 5.4 cm. I was so excited about that, that I almost called it a day, but I had only been on the beach for two hours, so I decided to keep going. Then after not much more luck I found what I believe to be a piece of a dolphin jaw. I had a hard time trying to photograph that tonight, so I will try again tomorrow. I also found a nice piece of whale rib, around 7 cm long. I left it in the car, so I will have to photograph it with the jaw. Today was a great day for finding bones. I found a heap of small bones, which I will photograph later. Then toward the end of the day I found the two teeth with cusps. I need to read more about cusped teeth, I am weak in that area. One disappointment of the day was watching a father & his son digging in the cliff. They had climbed up a hill of loose material about 15 feet up and we're digging right into the cliff. They were oblivious to not only the rules of the beach, but also their own safety. It made me sick to watch them. I will update this report tomorrow.
Hi everyone! Sorry it's been a long time I haven't posted anything, I was busy with many projects.. Now, for the good news!… I'm writing a paper!! It's an overview of the opalised fossils of Australia; I focus especially on the diverse reptile remains from Lightning Ridge, New South Wales. The paper is 25 pages approx., and intend on publishing it in Deposits Magazine, a popular geology review. Best wishes, Christian
