  1. I was in the area, so I made a very brief stop by the HMNS. I'll state up-front that this will be extremely dino-centric. What I saw was really great, they have a chronologically-organized display of animals from stromatolites to humans (I only made it to the Cretaceous). The lighting is very dramatic, so seeing it in person is much better than the dark photos portray (I did edit a few of them to enhance visibility). Lots of dynamic posing which is nice compared to other museums. Also, most specimens aren't behind glass, and you can get really close. I believe most of the skeleton
  2. The Paleontological Society of Austin took a trip to the Museum for this months Field Trip. Collecting in August is not much fun unless you get out WAY early, so a nice Air Conditioned Museum sounded like a good idea! So we went to a small museum that has been open for only a couple of years, but has a really nice collection of Texas fossil (and a few other places, but primarily Texas). They are known for their work in the Permian Red Beds, so much of the focus is on that time period, but a nice selection of other eras as well. We were fortunate to get a "behind the museum" tour too, of their
  3. I spent a week or so recently in the north of Germany, mainly to spend some time with my son and his family, but I did take them all along one day for a sidetrip to the Urzeithof, of which I had learned through an interesting article about it in the last edition of the German journal "Fossilien". I must say, I was very impressed by what Frank Rudolph and his partner Katrin Mohr along with a large number of enthusiastic and engaged volunteers have managed to create over the last few years. Katrin, an enthusiastic hobby fossil collector, started the museum over 10 years ago when a barn on her hu

  5. 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
  6. Haven't had time to post here lately, but I carved out a slot so here we go. In April of last year (2019), I had a chance to visit China. When I was in Beijing, one of my goals was to see the feathered dinos. I visited two museums that had them. One was the Geological Museum of China. The other (The Beijing Museum of Natural History) will be the subject of another post. I took hundreds of pictures there, but I can't post them all here. I have selected some of the better ones, focusing on the feathered critters. You'll have to excuse the lighting and quality
  7. My wife and I recently traveled to Fairbanks, Alaska for a mini vacation and toured the Museum of the North on the University of Alaska, Fairbanks campus. It brought back some old memories as I completed my undergraduate training there in 1986. Here are a few pictures from the displays that I found interesting. The hadrosaurs display is fairly new and in the entryway Mammoth display Dinosaur interpretive displaysRay Troll art. Enjoy! AK Hiker
  8. I'd wager that most of us here have found our passion because of our local natural history museum. I know I did, ever since I was a child and visited the LA County Natural History Museum frequently. COVID-19 has proved a profound challenge to our beloved local institutions. A large part of their revenues have come from museum visits, which has not been possible during the current pandemic. Vaccines are available and museums have gradually begun to reopen, but the need remains. Our museums need our support now as ever before. In that spirit, I'm going to donate $200 to the Los Angeles County Na
  9. In 2008, I found one of the prizes of my collection amongst a pile of sand and broken bits at Calvert Cliffs. I knew from seeing museum specimens of Isognomon maxillata that even with the tip broken off, this was a great find. After admiring it on my shelf every day since, I decided to share it. Today it has a new home at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, which did not have any of this species or much of anything from that region amongst its 2,000,000+ mollusk specimens. Along with the Isognomon, I donated a Chesapectin nefrens shell with a number of pearl buds on the inside and a Tongu
  10. A few more of my favorite finds from the Aurora Fossil Museum Matrix - I am not even half way through the two gallon bags of matrix from my purchase! SO MUCH COOL LITTLE STUFF!! Being micros, all specimens are under 1/4 inch Shark Teeth: Top Cookie Cutter, Sand Tiger Bottom : Catshark, Unknown Not Shark Teeth: Top: Not sure what this one is, Second one is Raja Bottom: Fish Porgy and Dasyatidae Top: Echinoid spine and tubercle Bottom: Burrfish mouthplate and a bit o' Crab I think Not sure a
  11. 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

    Aurora Fossil Museum micro matrix

    I have a quick question for those that have bought and gone through their micro matrix from the Aurora Fossil Museum. Did you wash it before going through it, or wash it after you've found your fossils? I got the pack with the mini screen for sifting, but I'm a little afraid to wash it all first and risk losing tiny teeth. How did you all go about doing yours, or what do you think the best way would be?
  13. Will follow up with current stage photos shortly! Here is what I started with: Unidentified Provenance Unknown Really bad mold mismatch/ thick seam

    Cameloid skull and ramus- NE SD ?

    Whew. Last one with identifying marks to identify. Is a museum cast. UNSM 4616 Sure, I could email the collections curator at Morril Hall, but I’m afraid to wear out my welcome. As of yet have been unable to find data on this one on my own. Figure I’ll give yinze a crack at it before I bother the museum for the twentieth time. My research shows this to be a camel of some sort. It is likely Nebraska or South Dakota in origin for the original due to the provenance of the other casts yinze have seen me dealing with the last few weeks.
  15. Fast and dirty: Found this cast a day or two back in the stock room- someone made an attempt...so I’m going to fix it since it uses similar colors to the lion and peccary projects.
  16. My kids and I have had a very successful year, so far, collecting a ton of Miocene fossils from the Calvert Cliffs. Along with some larger shark teeth, cetacean bones, etc., we accumulated a couple of containers full of smaller and broken teeth, ray plate pieces, unidentifiable bone fragments, and the like. After some discussion, my boys and I agreed it would be great if we could donate many of these "excess" finds to the Calvert Marine Museum to support their youth educational programs. This is actually where my kids and I first learned about fossil collecting from the Calvert Cliffs ourselv

    From the album: Aurora/Lee Creek Mine Micro Matrix

    This assemblage came from one cup (about 340 ml) of micro matrix from Aurora Fossil Museum. Oddly, they are generally much larger than most of what I found in the rest of the matrix. They are all from either the Pliocene or Pleistocene. See album description.

  22. I recently moved into a house with some friends on our university campus, and this nice cabinet was included right past the front door. So of course I had to put together a little museum! These are just the fossils I have on me at this time, but I’ll probably pick some more up to add next time I visit home or if I go on a hunt soon. I tried adding some fun blurbs with a couple that I felt had some really cool information hiding in them. If there’s any specific part you want to see, or if you have any fun suggestions, let me know!

    Le Muséum de l’Ardèche

    So for the past few weeks I’ve been camping in the Ardèche region in southern France. There was a nice little museum just a couple of miles from where I was staying. Le Muséum de l’Ardèche is the located in the small village Balazuc (which is also worth a visit). Most of the pieces were collected by Bernard Riou, a French Palaeontologist. Some pictures: Fossil insects from the Plateau du Coiron. Fossils from this location (about an hour away from Balazuc) are amazing. My favourite insect at the Museum: Nice Milliped
  24. Hey there! I know I know, I've been missing in action for the past few months. Work and Field work kept me busy. But I've now am taking the time to update my blog, and sharing some of my recent adventures. This one is not so much of a fossil hunting trip, but of discovery on fossil history in New Brunswick. A few weekends ago I went for a day trip to Saint John to meet up with my friend Matt at the New Brunswick Museum's Steinhammer Lab. He's currently doing a stint at the research facility and I couldn't resist, desperately wanting to tour this historic place. This building was the or
  25. A recent item in our local TV news (CHEK in Victoria) caught my eye... A local guy who makes models of anything and everything, apparently, was commissioned to make a life-sized Arthropleura (the huge myriapod from the coal swamps) for the Burpee Museum in Illinois. Catch it while the video is still posted: https://www.cheknews.ca/chek-upside-saanichton-artist-recreates-prehistoric-millipede-680876/ Would be nice to see pics of it when it arrives in place, from any of you who live in that area
