Posted by MikeR in Southern Comfort, 23 February 2013 - * * * * * · 1,687 views

Hello to The Fossil Forum! Lately I am starting a souvenir collection of Aetobatis fossils. It's slow going, but I am just beginning:) I do all my collecting trading or purchasing fossils, since I live in Hawaii, and am disabled so can't easily get out in the fossil fields. When I was young I used to see the baby Spotted Eagle Rays swimming in t...

Simply put, life has been busy. It seems like the obvious excuse until you go through it yourself :P Things have been busy enough that I suppose fossils and fossil hunting has been put on the back burner for a while. That's not to say it's gone forever of...
