  1. Taiwan's largest museum devoted only to fossils is located at the southern part of the island, near the city of Tainan at the Zuojhen Fossil Park. Most travelers will start their journey in the capital city of Taipei, but Tainan is only a <2 hour bullet train ride away (the bullet train, or high speed rail, is a destination in of itself- a marvel of speed, comfort and efficiency) and a visit to the Zuojhen Fossil Park is highly recommended. For western audiences, fossil park may be a bit misleading. Its not a park as in playgrounds and grassy fields, more like an industrial park, or complex
  2. Although I've been to Taiwan many times, it never occurred to me to visit their natural history museum until my last trip in late 2019. Most travelers will start in the capital city, Taipei, which is home to the National Taiwan Museum. Unfortunately, it was undergoing extensive remodeling so there wasn't much to see in terms of fossils at the main building. Across the street is the Land Bank Exhibition Hall (LBEH). Entrance to the LBEH is included in the price of admission to the National Taiwan Museum (around $1). The suggested walking path through the LBEH is essentially a walk
  3. Hi All, All of this free time to procrastinate during isolation has made me wonder what everyone’s favourite species of prehistoric animal is. I know that there are collectors of dinosaur fossils, shark fossils, ammonites etc so am curious what everyone’s favourite species are and why. My favourite is Baryonyx, closely followed by Allosaurus. Baryonyx because I’m from the uk and it’s a super cool dinosaur. Allosaurus a close second as their teeth are probably my favourite of all Dino teeth available. Keen to know what yours are and why
  4. Looking to obtain either a copy of the July 2009 (Volume 15, No. 7) "Fossil News - The Journal of Avocational Paleontology" or a scan of an included 5 page article on the Marston Magna ammonites locality discovery and history. Not sure of the exact title.
  5. Hi I decided to make a quick guide on how to ID Tyrannosaur teeth from the Belly River Group of Alberta, and the Judith River, Two Medicine Formations. I got this information on a study on how to ID isolated Tyrannosaur teeth from Dr. Angelica Torices. I’ll start off on saying Albertosaurus and Gorgosaurus are extremely alike not much differences in the morphology Daspletosaurus is a little bit Different, the morphology of these two Tyrannosaurs (Gorgosaurus and Daspletosaurus) are probably do to similar evolutionary history Gorgosaurus could of been Albertosaurus ancestor. Now I’ll tell you h
  6. Is anyone here familiar with a company by the name of "Fossils: Nature's window on the fourth dimension"? Our collection has some specimens with this label, but nobody is familiar with the title's significance. I'm trying to determine when and by whom they were established, which regions their fossils were collected from, and when they dissolved (if no longer active). Thanks!

    ID 3 species in a Permian themed exhibit

    I just went to this traveling exhibit in a museum in a city where my brother lives that it is about the animals and life in the Permian period and I got pictures of 3 fossils, an ammonite, a trilobite and a crinoid but I don’t know what species and genus they are?

  9. Would anyone happen to have contact info for anyone in the fossil field at the Smithsonian/Museum of Natural History? Actually, any museum, or "official"(?) expert of the field--Prehistoric whales/Cetus. Ive tried contacting anyone from the smithsonian website contact form, and through email, but haven't had any luck yet. I know they would be very busy, but as my attempts have only gone to the most general direction, I'm thinking that if the messages even end up getting to the correct people at all, they may not even get the messages for some time.

    The Pickle Jars

    Hi TFF Last year I spent a hole afternoon with one of the curators of the Natural History Museum London. I had a behind the scenes look at the Museum's fascinating zoology collection preserved in spirit. We explore some of the Darwin Centre’s 27 kilometres of shelves,encounter numerous treasures hidden among the 22 million animal specimens housed here. with the highlight been a 8.62-metre-long giant squid court in the Falklands Islands and a very good look at some of the specimens collected by Charles Darwin himself . I did get to hold Darwin's now pickled pet octopus ,
  12. Here is an entertaining article about the history of cephalopods that has really nice illustrations of what they may have looked like. It also points out why soft tissue fossils are nearly nonexistent. A tidbit: fossils once were thought to grow in the rocks. http://www.eartharchives.org/articles/500-million-years-of-cephalopod-fossils/
  13. These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing. MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source. If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at joegallo1954@gmail.com and I'll be happy to send it to you.

    My Collection About 1960

    This old photo which my brother recently digitized is of an exhibit our club organized for the Perry County Tennessee County Fair. Our club was called "The Perry County Geographic Society". We studied history, collected fossils and Indian relics. This exhibit shows some of the Indian relics my brother and I found around various sites in Perry County starting in the mid 1950s. There are some fossils included but unfortunately not visible in the photo. The old musket hanging on the back is a Tower Confederate musket from the Civil War. The skull was found by a classmate along the road and partl
