Into the Devonian reefs

Last weekend we went to a fieldtrip with the BVP ( Belgian Associaton for Paleontology ) to my favorite quarry

We had the opportunity again to prospect the frasnian deposits around this fossil reef.

There hasn’t been a lot of activity in the quarry since last time, so the finds were less frequent than normal, but we still did find a decent haul of fossils, mainly cephalopods.

The great weather conditions and the good company made this a very fine fieldtrip and ended with a visit to a local tavern for a few refreshments.

Thx, the one we found on the previous visit was even bigger, almost twice as big as this one : 40cm in diameter  ( Crickites sp. )
