Eocene Delight

Having been giddy from my recent Meg find, I admittedly had to take myself out of gravy mode. It would be presumptuous to let the gravy spill over two different collecting sites; so I let DW cross-pollenate the collecting area, so to speak. This proved to be wise. The morning was cloudy and breezy which is excellent collecting weather especially after a good rain. I hunted some fresh spoil piles and ended up with a worn ric and some smaller teeth. After an hour or so of digging in green cap (and one tooth later), I decided to collect on the limestone area (Santee formation). The rics are pristine in this formation, but few and far between. Finally, I spotted a shiny enamel blade and a root poking out of the softer limestone…took a ground shot…and flipped out a superhero ric! One of my best..light brown in color, both cusps and crisp serrations. I walked around hoping for another, but it was young Weezling who bagged a top shelf ric!

How can I forget?...I did find a nice fossilized sand dollar to add to my T$ memorial invertebrate collection today…..
