    I Love Looking Through Cow Patches For Fossils

    When I was a kid we used to go hunting for fossils.  My dad would ask the farmer first if it was okay to walk through his field and then we would go.  My Grandma used to call me a mountain goat because I would scale the hill quickly to get to the spot.  There were...

    3-Year-Old Finds Wooly Mammoth Tooth

    I Want to Find Megaladon

    Or that scary looking fish, Dunkleosteus he is the coolest ever!!!!  Mostly we've found crinoids, sponges, and corals.  There is no reason though, that we shouldn't be able to eventually find the fossil of a fish or some part of a shark...actually, I'm pretty sure that...
