Today was full of a lot of things, including steep hills, slippery rocks, and a lot of falling. But it was also full of amazing views and lots of croc and theropod teeth. Once we made it to the site, we were able to do some prospecting and most of us were able to collect some teeth and bones on the surface that had been exposed from erosion, before venturing out to find new sites. I haven’t felt this tired in a long time, but it was so worth it to be able to hike through the millions of years of rock formations and to be able to be able to collect fossils I hadn’t seen yet!
It’s not ideal when it rains in the field, but the rainbows definitely make up for it! It’s impossible to not look forward to the digs with views this beautiful. So far at Suicide Hill, we’ve found a few caudal vertebrae, some ribs and their fragments, and some unidentified teeth. We still have a lot of progress to make too so hopefully much more to come!
