I enjoy searching for extinct animal remains or fossils. I want to see what other peoples favorite extinct creatures are, and what other observations and stories are out there.
A little while ago, some family members and I went to a creek to look for fossils. Not expecting that we would find much, we walked around the area for a while, picking up shell and sea urchin fossils as we went. After starting to head to the car, our bags full of small fossils, when to our astonishment, a Dunkleosteus plate! Observation #1
We called a specialist who told us all about our fossils. He said that we should head back to the spot where we had found it, and see if we could find more of the specimen. We ended up going back to the area in which we had found the fossil, and only a short distance up the creek, we were amazed to find another, better preserved, plate! Observation #2
We called the specialist once again, and he said that it was the same exact plate, but from a second Dunkleosteus!
