Bone Valley Trip - some awesome finds.


Recommended Posts

Meganeura

Went with my wife to a pay site today - our second time here, but I convinced her to let me stay all day instead of just half the day this time! Overall it was a very lucrative hunt, and I’ve walked away with my new fav finds! Also had the pleasure of meeting @Nimravis who told me to post here, as well as taught me about a bunch of the fossils I found.


Anyway, the finds:

 

Starting with my fav, a mostly intact whale vertebrae:

My new favorite Meg tooth - which happens to have lightning in the root:

A baby posterior Meg tooth:

And multiple Meg fragments, including a file/hollow tooth:

A partial mako and multi-layered ray mouth plate:

Some gorgeous snaggletooths, sting ray barb, shark vertebrae, and bone/antler that my wife found that we’re not sure what it is:

And the rest of the many teeth and ray plates and other fossils we found:

Overall it was an awesome day! Next week I’ll be taking a canoe down Peace River and will hopefully have some fun finds to share!

I am just a little jealous! I like the idea of a paid site, not something we have in the UK I don't think? If you don't mind me asking how much is it and what kind of rules is there? Is it a free for all on a 1000 acres or piles of overspill from a quarry or something? The idea fascinates me!

 

Great finds by the way too!

They give each of us individual piles of material/gravel, a hose, and you spray down the pile. @Nimravis has a much more detailed post with pictures of the site itself and the layout that will do a much better job answering your questions though!

 

And thank you very much, they’re definitely my fav finds!

It’s my first fully complete Meg tooth too, so I’m pretty happy about it!
