It’s really, really old news. One stormy day in February, Nicole Day and a couple friends were collecting agates on a beach west of Tow Hill when she saw something — bones in the sand. “I thought it was a sea lion tooth or something,” said Day, who had beachcombed a glass ball and several fossils before, but never preserved bone. Helped by a southeast wind blowing 50 kilometres an hour, Day swept the sand away. What she uncovered weren’t teeth exactly, but tusks.
