Our local streams produce an abundance of shark teeth and other
Cretaceous material, what our area is not known for are fossilized sea
urchins. What makes this unusual find by Robert Badger even sweeter, is
that the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton did not have a specimen of
H. parastatus among their collection. Bob was gracious enough to donate his prize to our
local state museum.

Kudos to Bob and the countless others who have donated to the various
universities and museums around the world.
