prep lab air upgrade
hadrosauridae posted a topic in Fossil PreparationAfter rebuilding my prep station to accommodate working with my new microscope, the final part was to upgrade my air delivery with a super-sized desiccant filter. I was tired of changing out my desiccant beads 2 - 3 times a day during heavy use, so I made a DIY filter using a home water filter system. Now instead of using 4 ounces of beads, I have 4 pounds! That should finally give me a decent interval between changes.
Might (finally) be a good year for the Peace River
digit posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsThe last couple of fossil hunting seasons on the Peace River have been pretty short and limited. In 2017 Hurricane Irma made a mess of Florida and pretty much ran directly over the Peace River causing unbelievable flooding in the area (Canoe Outpost in Arcadia had to rebuild their office after the waters rose to waist-deep). Last season frequent periodic heavy rains kept spiking up the river level anytime it got down near levels that would have permitted decent fossil hunting. Both seasons were very brief but persistent fossil hunters (driven nearly mad from the waiting) did manage to pull som

A tooth, but ...

Found this earlier in the empty lot next to the hotel I work at (we own the lot as well). Just laying there, partly buried & I almost stepped on it. Its extremely light, just 9.7 gm or 3/4 oz and in very bad shape. 1 5/16 inches long x 1 3/16 inches wide. I realize it's most likely modern, but I still want to know just what mouth this came out of if possible.
