Page 5: More Digging and Collecting

The irrigation ditch leads to the creek, where yet more trilobites can be found, in addition to crawfish and other creek life that the young kids enjoyed.

Among the spikes used to raise the shale was this REALLY LONG tool. This helps keep those extra large Isotelus in one piece as the shale is lifted. It's true. I'm not kidding!

Tom Bantel finds half of a big Isotelus that would have been from 4 to 6 inches long.

Everyone gathers to see Tom Bantel's partial Isotelus. Don Bissett wants to know what Tom did with the other half of it! Don gets to keep any that are 5 inches or longer, since it's his property.
