Another Trek Into the Alpine For Marine Triassic Fossils


Local physician and TRMF Board member Charles Helm led a trip into the remote alpine in search of fossil fish and marine reptiles.

The small party takes a break from hiking with a very scenic backdrop.

 

A nearly complete, but very eroded fish (Bobasatrania) which was too large to collect.

A small jaw of a marine reptile, with several teeth intact.

 

A small, but splendidly preserved section of the tail of a large fish (Birgeria). A great find, but if only the whole fish could be found,....
