We’re they all next to each other? Maybe they are associated.

From what I recall, they were not that close to each other in proximity, but the way the fossil field is laid out, things are scattered all over the place.

The Arora site is a spoil pile brought in from a local mine, nothing is articulated there.

yeah, it's an amazing site. The lucky few still manage to pull some amazing megalodon teeth there. I found tons of smaller bones and various sharks teeth. Wish I could go back.

Then go. There is no time limit on collecting there except at night.

It seems you have not met my wife, lol....I am gone enough when traveling for work. Don't think a fossil hunt would earn me any points with her :headscratch:

Funny enough...she is a biology teacher. I actually put her in contact with the guy that used to control access to the spoils. He used to send her buckets of spoil to her school for the science teachers to use in their classrooms. Still wasn't enough to convince her I should spend more time there, lol.

Tell her there is a diamond hidden in there someplace. She'll be glad to dig all day!
