Orange County, California Paleo Solutions provided Archaeological and Paleontological Services for a large-scale housing development. Multiple large to small fossil salvages were conducted during grading including several whales that were previously unknown species, sharks, leatherback turtles, ancestral sea lions and many other smaller specimens. No delays to construction were incurred due to these discoveries. Paleo Solutions salvaged numerous significant fossils from the marine Miocene Monterey Formation. We discovered and salvaged a rare fossilized shark nearly fully intact. We also salvaged whales ( one of which was a new specie), leather back turtles and paleoparadoxia (the second one  discovered in the pacific rim).
