2nd Trip to Onslow Quarry in Richlands

Made another trip to Richlands just to see if I could find my elusive Archaeocete tooth.  It finally happened!!!!  When we were getting ready to leave I decide to start searching real close to the ground to try and find some smaller teeth.  I saw a weird looking nub sticking out of some limestone and pulled it out not even thinking that it may be a tooth.  When I pulled it out it looked like a piece of a tooth because of the broken part that I could see.  After I realized what I had found I almost started to cry because I had broke it.  But after careful extraction of the rest of it I was able to piece it back together.  I can’t wait until we get some real good rain around here so more of these can work them selves out to be found.  Until next time.....good hunting!!!!
