Yo I tried looking for fossils once, dug down hoping to find anything to no avail and I got kicked out of university because apparently digging up the university allotments isn't acceptable. Anyway It doesn't matter because I'm an influencer who drives a gold plated lamborghini I got the gold skin from reaching 10th prestige at oxford but do you think I'd be able to get into cambridge with only 200 A*?

Nah that's not an ammonite you need to take that fossil to the research facility so they can hatch it into a pokemon then use the fly HM to get into the secret illuminati base on top of mount rushmore.

No dinosaurs (as of yet) but I’m planning on getting us down to Lyme Regis to see if we can get ourselves a piece of an ichthyosaur (big marine reptile that’s kinda like a dinosaur)
