|Entrance to the Rock Shop. So Scary!|
|The fossil I purchased at the rock shop.|
First adventure: While trying to find a steak house in Evanston, Wyoming, Rachel and I came across a home with ceramic dinosaurs decorating their front lawn. It was a rock shop called, Antares Fossils and Minerals (antaresfossils.com). Of course we had to go in, I love me some rock shop. While paroozing the various sections of the shop I came across this beauty from the Green River Fossil Biota. The owner of the shop told us that he uncovered the fossil himself at his Green River quarry. The owner and his crew uncover 30 (each) or more of these Fish fossils every weekend. The quarry is home to possibly the best fossil record of tertiary aquatic communities (of the Eocene, 55 million years ago!) in the world!
Of course I had to buy one.
