A Quarry near Hannover, September 27th 2008

Finally I had time to take another trip down South to Germany, Holland and Belgium. First stop was this quarry near Hannover. There are several quarries around here and we actually noticed we were in the wrong one, the one were you wouldn't find that many superb echinoids. But for the 'sponge' people it was a real 'goldmine'.

I did manage to find one good echinoid and my friend Gerrit-Jan found a nice little ammonite and....... this awesome Hexanchus tooth, onlt 2 cm in lenght but a real beauty. On the end of the day he decided to trade it with me, well the week couldn't start any better.

this was the Misburg quarry...the nr1 quarry for echinoids and sponges is the Hoever/Sehnde Quarry....but the misburg quarry has a bigger Bandwidth of Fauna!
