Where I can find some images for collection labels ?
Francesco1994 posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHello everyone ! I wanted to ask you where I could find "silhouette" images of the species to put on labels for my collection. I am in fact making an inventory and cataloging all my fossils and I would like to create labels on the style that I am attaching to you at the bottom. Is there a site or any stock images of this type? From the images it would seem that they all belong to the same "style". Thank you in advance and have a nice week!
Show your best fossil skulls or skull parts!
JorisVV posted a topic in Member CollectionsI find skulls one of the most interesting pieces of fossil you can ever own. So here I'd love to see all of your fossil skulls, or parts of one. Here is my Pleistocene era skull of a Ursus arctos. An ice age brown bear. Very very uncommon find.

Nanotyrannus35 posted a topic in Member CollectionsHere is a view of my green river formation collection. Most of these fish were found at @sseth's quarry, American Fossil.

The best of.....
indominus rex posted a topic in Member CollectionsHello, I am quite curious as to what your prized possessions are. You can post about 2 images. I will start with mine. My personal favorite is my Tethysaurus vertebrae, it was either this or my Keichousaurus but I felt like this was more "special" than my Keichousaurus.
Show Us Your Model Meets Fossil Displays
Kurufossils posted a topic in Member CollectionsTheres no way I'm the only one, but I think a fossil display with models incorporated take display and immersion to the next level. The creature alongside the evidence it left behind, makes such museum like feel in appearance and enhances the appreciation and wonder. Heres a thread to post any fossils you have on display alongside a model, statue, or toy. Here is a display from my collection of one of my favorite prehistoric creatures postosuchus alongside a giant 10inch+ chirotherium pos/neg footprint.
Extreme Budget Exotic Meg/Shark Teeth Collection
Kurufossils posted a topic in Member CollectionsHello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. Anyone else out
How do you display your fossils?
Digi posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI'm running out of room on my little shelf, so I was curious how you guys display YOUR fossils! I could use some ideas, as well as an excuse to see your guys's awesome collections!
jpc posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI want to start an actual computer database for my collection. I want to find a free downloadable database. Does anyone out there have any input? At work I use FileMaker Pro. I designed the database for our collections and it works well, but it costs 500 plus bucks (300 for academic use, which is what we paid). I do not want to pay that sort of money, or any if possible. I looked into Specify, but they seem to be only for actual museums and not for home collections, or so it seems on the download page. What, if anythng do you folks use?
Plans for your collection once you're......ummm...Dead !
Abyss posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionThe title was blunt to the point, & I was thinking. Let's hope this is far away, but still the fact is not going away. Ok we all know we have a passion for certain things here & have a collection going on. I'm curious what is others plan for their collection, once .........gone ? I know the simple thing is to will it to kin, though do they appreciate it ? And would they pawn it off as soon as they get ? I would assume if over time if need be you'd sell off to pay bills etc... Though what if your kin is not so much into your colle
Extant shark teeth in fossil shark teeth collection?
DevilDog posted a topic in Questions & AnswersDoes anyone keep extant shark teeth in their fossil shark teeth collections for comparison and reference? Is it poor form to ask for an ID on this forum of an extant tooth to see if it is related to a fossil tooth?
