This is the result of two trips after some major rains.  This was something I hoped to find, but have failed so far.  I found a piece of jaw, so the thought of digging it is gone, but would still love to collect the rest.  They are beautiful.  On the first trip, I stumbled upon the first vert sitting high atop a shale pile calling my name.  I admired it for a while and moved along happy with the find.  On my way out, I caught a glimpse of another under water and that got me excited!  I have spent a few trips just to look for it, but nothing until this past weekend.  A couple more verts showed up.  I know it can’t be far, but I think it stays under mounds of shale all the time.

Awesome finds! You’ve uncovered Mosasauroids and now Sauropterygians, so now you that leaves the ichthyosaurs. That’s gonna be a real toughie to find because they were already extinct, but I still have faith you can find one:P

I will I’ll have to take another pic with something.  The bottom vert is 2.5 inches so a smaller species from the best guess.  There is also a jaw piece that helped with ID.
