    AboundingO…
    (24 items)

    We have numerous old rock pits here in SEK, and most of them I have hunted.

    This comes from one located at a near-by small town. Now closed to the public, due to drugs and parties there, it used to be a popular swim hole for us kids. I discovered that there were many crinoids and fossil corals, but this is the only fossilized fish thingy I have ever found anywhere. I did find one fossilized sea cucumber, which is somewhere, but lost.

    This is exactly as I found it.

    Identity? Age? Fish or crawdaddy...other?

    Where the heck does one place fossils or meteorites? LOL - Fishing works for me on this, until told

    6. Aimathena Aimathena, 6 years ago
      LmboOoOo! That might be a good idea ;^)
    7. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      Bet after a few tokes of this Jamaican, I can see a ginger root with eyes! maybe even more. Probably more!
    8. AboundingOddities AboundingOddities, 6 years ago
      LOL...I should'a stopped at silence...thanks for the stop by Blunderbuss
    9. Aimathena Aimathena, 6 years ago

      I promise that it's just a "stop by". I also now see a miniature boars head. I'm not the only one. It is sat. nite! Just joking, - I think.
    11. AboundingOddities AboundingOddities, 6 years ago
      LOL..don't I wish, Blunderbuss!
      LOL...I would hope youre enjoying your sat night, but that's apparent...

      JayHow. Good memories when they are young. I repeat, "When they are young"!
    13. AboundingOddities AboundingOddities, 6 years ago
      Thanks Jay and Blunderbuss...I wanted to lock down my 3 girls the day they hit 12...grandmas and moms won out...then they discovered I was right..boys? slap em upside the head...girls, ???? My girls used to go with me too...my eldest still hunts fossils alone...swears she has a turtle (a sandstone she broke in two...LOL). Her excitement disallows me to tell her it's a broke in two sandstone...but she did find an American sloth claw a few years ago, which is awesome for her
    14. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      Have you posted the sloth claw?
    15. AboundingOddities AboundingOddities, 6 years ago
      To pry it from her and bring it here to photog might be a long aired time...she's always at work or on the run...I'll try though...even though I am fairly certain it is a claw, I'm not a paleontologist...she'd let me, just catching her long enough, Blunderbuss
    16. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      Don't know where you live but the area I grew up in, N. AL & N.GA, has loads of fossils(mostly sea shells, ferns etc.) but S.AL has loads of things like Megalodon teeth in the area around Dothan & Enterprise.
    17. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      Don't forget the tornado season!
    18. AboundingOddities AboundingOddities, 6 years ago
      SE kans, blunderbuss...we have a lot of old rock quarries, mostly just corals and crinoids, but we find land creatures and fish also. My first brachiopod casting I hollered like an idiot, proclaiming I had found a million year old pearl. I still have that little thing. The neatest I ever found was a sea cucumber, but then I had the brilliant idea to cut it out of the extra stone............didn't look like a cucumber after that........ouch! We'll match you tornado for tornado, and raise you straight-line winds............but then ya'all have those little things called huricanes don't you?

      Poor Jay, winter in Ohio......it's cold enough here
    19. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      We have the Big H's in St. Maarten but few tornadoes. Actually, the largest tornado I've ever seen was here on the French side but in the harbour & moved out to sea. Before you ask, I've lost count of the tornadoes I've seen or heard passing close or overhead. Saw 4 at once driving E. into Atlanta once in diff. stages of touching down. They like to follow waterways & that's where you find the Megalodon teeth in S. AL. In AL, you can stop at any road-cut thru shale & find loads of fossils.
    20. AboundingOddities AboundingOddities, 6 years ago
      Sounds interesting...that's more tornados than any place needs at once. They take out towns here, even parts of this town on rare occasion. I love road cuts. If I ever find myself driving through your section of the country I'll have to watch for some.
