Nice find by the team today! Titanites sp., a giant ammonite fossil from south eastern British Columbia! This site is known, just crazy awesome to see it for real!

It crazy how popular this image is!! Not suprised tho, it's super cool!!! This is part of a geological heritage project we are doing, so follow us on Instagram @below_bc or the website for more rocks, fossils and minerals!
Also going to thank @GeoscienceBC and @AME_BC for the funding for the heritage work this year! 1000+ likes on a geology tweet is something I never thought we'd get! Fossils rule am I right?!
I'm told by my much younger, social media savvy team that this post is now front page and trending on #Reddit. 10.1k up votes. Considering 10 likes was good in the past for us on twitter, let's hope we can keep the inspirational geology going! #nopressure
OK! A couple of mass updates!

1. We are not giving out the location of this site as it should be protected. Locals will know where it is, but we are not being responsible. Some of the comments about cutting it out and selling it are why we can't have nice things...
2. Below BC is a non profit I started three years ago to help educate people about geology and earth science in BC. This year we had major funding from @GeoscienceBC and as such are doing a Heritage Tour of BC to digitize these sites for all to access and enjoy online.
3. I tweeted this originally from this account which is linked to my for profit exploration consulting group as it had the biggest initial reach! Hive is supporting the project by providing all the staffing and equipment for the project, as well and the connections we have built
4. This is not a hoax! Titanites was a large ammonite from the Tithonian Stage of the late Jurassic, so is about 150 million years old. They reached 1.4m across and were fast-moving predators!
5. We are always looking for new ideas of places to go, sources of funding and even exploration work through Hive as the majority of our proceeds geta funneled into the non profit :) yes, that was a cheeky plug!
6. The #gold price is up and seems to be holding steady! Gold seems to drive funding in the geological sciences, so long may it continue!
