Baculites from Littly Smoky River, Alberta

Recommended Posts

JustPlainPetrified

Another very successful trip to the Little Smoky River this year north of Valleyview, Alberta. River levels had finally receded and we were lucky to be one of the first to pick the banks for exposed baculites. They are mostly fragmented and I have yet to find a complete specimen. No matter the size their colours are brilliant from silvery white, blues, reds and greens. The shimmery colour catches your eye when they are wet and at the waters edge.

Hi @JustPlainPetrified!

 

Some of your specimens are huge!!!  They put all of the cephalopods that I've found in my area to shame!!!  I love the iridescence on them - I think I would stare at them all day if I had found them... :P

 

Congratulations!

Thanks! We tried a fall trip last weekend and 3 days of rain previous left all the rivers high so no joy at all.
