Recent finds, new locality

Found a new locale. I found dozens of cowries & cones, but included photographs here of the more unusual stuff: > a huge cowrie!; > two turtle femus (probably recent); > several intact, complete crab claws; > one lower Blacktip Reef Shark tooth; > several rare Cypraea granulata cowries > Porcupinefish jaw The locale has a much larger exposure, with abundant material in matrix. The turtle femus I found in association with a few opihi limpets, and I suspect they are old pre-fossils. BTW, don't remember if I ever gave ages of these things: Late Pleistocene (!125,000 yrs BP), Waimanolo Fm.

This one is on the northern portion of the island. In addition to fossils, there's great four-wheeling, fishing & snorkeling, rare monk seals and breeding ground for albatrosses. So when ya coming to visit? ;)
