Dave Fuqua has been hunting fossils since his childhood.  Tutored personally by resident paleontologist Diane Gabriel as a teenager. Dave went on to study under elite paleontologist Jack Horner at Montana State and has even done a dig with him in Mongolia.  Dave used to volunteer as a Paleoranger for Makoshika State Park and was a correspondent for the Museum of the Rockies.  The Museum of the Rockies just completed excavation of a triceratops Dave found in 2015.  Now Dave has found a love sharing his passion for paleontology through his Dinodave videos and educating the public with firsthand experience of finding a dinosaur. 



Possible specimens we could find


  • Crocodiles, Turtles, Champsosaur vertebra and Gar scales.  This only makes sense since we will be exploring ancient river beds. I can about guarantee you will find these.
  • Triceratops and more Triceratops. "The buffalo of the Hell Creek"
  • T-rex and Hadrosaurs.  


  • Dromeasaurs and velociraptors and other Therapods. These meat eating carnivores are always a cool find
  • Pachycephalosaurus, Thescalosaurs and  many more!
