51 DIGGING DINOSAURS Those bits of stone, a half-inch to a few inches long, were fossils. Some were lying right on the surface of the knob; others were partly in the mudstone and partly exposed. Bob and I got down on our hands and knees and gathered everything we could from the surface. When we sorted out the fossil bones from the dirt and the rocks, we found that we had the remains of two more baby dinosaurs. The obvious next step was to see what was in the ground. We went back to the Brandvolds to see if we could get permission from the landowners to dig on the land.
This land was owned by the Peebles family. The Brandvolds already had the family's permission for their own prospecting, and it seemed appropriate to go through them. On August 9, two and a half weeks after our first stop at the rock shop in Bynum, we took some shovels and burlap bags and went out to put a small hole in the Peebles' pasture land. We worked very quickly because we didn't know how long we'd be able to stay on the land. We hadn't talked to the Peebles ourselves, and it wasn't clear from what the Brandvolds told us how welcome we were.
We could say that the lineages of amphibians that evolved into reptiles disappeared, but really they continued on in different form. Other lineages faced with competition from the new reptiles simply went extinct, with no descendants. This is true disappearance. Still others stayed the distance, evolving and changing in some ways but remaining amphibians. From frogs to salamanders, the world is full of amphibians today—not the big, fierce, carnivorous amphibians that once prowled or perhaps sprawled through the conifers in the time before the heyday of the reptiles, but amphibians nonetheless.
