Good Choice

The rock hammer is a good tool to start with. This sedimentary rock is hard enough to require a rock hammer (rather than a brush), but not so hard that it requires dynamite to break through it. Make sure that you don't get careless though. You wouldn't want to accidentally damage the fossils.

Here is a picture of your site.

You dig all week and have uncovered portions of dinosaur bone. The forecast for the next few days includes lots of rain, what should you do with your newfound fossils?

Leave the fossils alone, they've made it this far without being touched.

Coat the bones for protection.
