Hawaii Fossil Hunting

Everyone knows the origin of Hawaii is volcanic and most likely assumes that there are no fossils to be found there. I was the same until one of Black River Fossils' members, Hemipristis, moved there for work and did some exploring on the island of Oahu. Oahu is the most populated Hawaiian island and is the home of Honolulu and Waikiki, and thanks to hemipristis, we now know there are fossils to be found there as well.

Kauai is even older than Oahu so there are probably fossils there too. I think I remember hemi telling me that he knows someone who found a partial megalodon tooth there, though he hasn't made it over to the Garden Island yet to do any scouting around. Who knew that fossil hunting would ever be included in the long list of Hawaii activities!

Location Oahu, Hawaii, USA
