For the past week, I have been yearning to get out on the trail, but we have been so busy at the center, that I have been unable to go out on any major excursions.
How lucky I was today that one adventurous young man brought a little excitement back from the hike he took with his sister and grandparents.
I asked his grandparents if he should remain anonymous since I wanted to post his find online, but he was ready for his moment in the spotlight and all agreed it was a good thing.
So without further ado.......
It's an Alligator Gar skull!
Not only did 7 year old Triztyn find this skull, he knew exactly what creature it came from.
Nice find, kiddo! Not to mention...impressive knowledge base. I hope you come back to visit soon.
Look at those teeth!
If you would like to check out it out in person...come on down! Triztyn has kindly donated this fine specimen to the nature center.
Come find your own adventure on our trails.
See you soon!
