    yes, you're seeing this right. Yesterday, I was in Kemmerer Wyoming. I went to a Quarry that was brought together by It was a fossil hunting Adventure! I was able to keep 63 fossils that I found. The picture you see is the best one.

    It is 1 ft long from head to tail. Without a doubt, my best find ever.

    I have 62 other specimens, but it'll take way too long to post all the pictures.

    Well, that's my find!

    I have collected fossils, but none of complete Fish...!
    My little fragments are in pale comparison...!
    How long did it take to recover the fossil...?

    Well, here's what happened. We split open the Rock, and we saw part of the fish. According to the people there, more of the fish was underneath the Rock. We didn't have the right tools at the time, so when I got home after the trip, I took a flat-head screwdriver and a hammer, and gently chiseled away the rock on the top layer. Eventually, the whole fish was exposed. Took me a couple of hours.

    Now I'm just trying to figure out how to put the two pieces together. It cracked on the way home, so the fossil is in two pieces. Trying to figure out how to reattach them.

    Have you consider SuperGlue to get it together, inside a display case?

    Thanks for the compliments, guys. I appreciate it.

    When some of you said that it belongs in a museum, the first thing that popped into my head was Indiana Jones.

    "It belongs in a museum!"

    Thanks again for the compliments!
