Hi everyone, My name is Skylar Snowden. I am brand new to the forum and brand new to fossil hunting. I am not from Arizona and am relatively new to the area. I am a Marine Biologist/Curator by profession, and have recently started getting into fossil hunting. I have found a few at diamond point, but want to find some other options. I was going to try and head up to the Payson area again in a week or so, and wanted to see if anyone could elaborate on the site that is, I think, 87 near the E. Verde river. Or, any other sites in the Payson/rim area. I did try the Paleo Site, but found very little. Honestly, I really enjoy doing this, as it gets me and my 2 dogs out of the valley heat. Lol. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Sky
On Sunday I took a trip to the Natural History Museum in London. I queued up before it opened at 10am and even before then there was a long queue. I have not visited this museum since I was a child and spent an entire day there (10am to 4.30pm - a long time). I was surprised as it is a lot bigger than I remembered and there was so much to see. This place has the most wonderful things and is an incredible place to learn. The museum showcases a Baryonyx, Sophie the Stegosaurus (the world's most complete Stegosaurus) and more! The moving Trex and Deinonychus are also really realistic in the way they move. If you like your dinosaur teeth, the Megalosaurus and Daspletosaurus teeth are out of this world! There is something for everyone in this museum and I would highly recommend that you visit here if you have not already! A lot of the dinosaur specimens are casts taken from other museums but they are still cool to look at. I had taken the photos on my SLR and due to the size of the photos I had to reduce the quality of them to be able to post on the forum which is unfortunate but it's the only way otherwise the photos would take a really long time to load. There are more non-dinosaur related photos that I will be posting at some point later on but may take me some time to pick out. Enjoy the photos from this section of the museum!
