  1. I'm really new at this, but I'm really interested in this area Found at Anyer beach, Indonesia
  2. A short presentation film of the Paleontological Research Center of the MNHN in Paris
  3. Hi everyone! I have just returned from a fieldschool to Poland which was organized by the BVP (Belgium Society for Paleontology) in association with the Universities of Opole and Gdansk. The fieldschool started on the 9th july and ended on july 17. The first 2-3 days of the trip took place in the historic city of Gdansk which lies by the Baltic Sea where the main focus was on Baltic Amber. This included lectures, workshops, a small museum tour and some trips to the beach in search for amber. For the 2nd part of the trip we travelled to the south towards Opole and more s
  4. Hey all. I'm in my last year of high school in brooklyn and I am extremely passionate about paleontology, but I don't know which school in NYC would be able to cater to my aspirations. There are a couple of cunys with geology but I cannot find any with programs in paleontology.
  5. A new article that looks at the bite force of theropods. Highlighted some of our more popular theropods. T rex continues to be the king by almost 2x to its closest rival. Nice to see the author include Nanotyrannus https://peerj.com/articles/13731/#table-1 FBAnt-bite force anterior FBPost-bite force posterior Wsk- Skull width
  6. I'm considering going back to school for an MS in paleontology, but unfortunately my undergrad degree is in linguistics and I don't have relevant credits to my name. I know admission requirements will vary from school to school, but I'm wondering if any of you have found yourselves in a similar situation and if so, how you handled it - did you get a second BS, another degree like an AS, take some biology/geology/etc classes to get credits without getting a whole new degree, something else? I will be reaching out to specific universities about this eventually, but I'd like to check in with peop

    Statue to Mary Anning

    Another one I don't know where to put. The statue has been unveiled I think today. I love looking at her finds in museums, and she was so important. I picked this article because it actually shows what the statue looks like. https://www-bbc-co-uk.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-61520324.amp?amp_gsa=1&amp_js_v=a9&usqp=mq331AQKKAFQArABIIACAw%3D%3D#amp_tf=From %1%24s&aoh=16531625375122&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com
  8. The Rio Puerco Valley was my introduction to fossils. For many years now, I have scoured its Late Cretaceous shales and sandstones in search of ammonites. Somewhere along the way, my fascination with the ornament grew into an investigation of its enviornment. Last week at the New Mexico Geologic Society's Spring meeting (program), I made my first venture into the world of paleontological science. With the help of Dr. Spencer Lucas of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, I presented a poster/abstract (Foley & Lucas 2017.pdf) exhibiting my ideas. I r
  9. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2022 AT 8 AM – 3 PM (and Sunday the 27th) Gabe Shuler (Cypress Gardens) and Robert Ireland reached out to me and said the Fossil Show is a green light. It is a two-day event starting Saturday February 26th, 2022. -------------------------------------- gabe.shuler@berkeleycountysc.gov (843) 553-0515 -------------------------------------- Recommendations: If you have arrangements to be a vendor or set-up a display you should arrive around 8am. The park hours will be from 9am-5pm but the show will most likely be scheduled to run until around 3pm. --------
  10. I am a university student studying T. rex, so of course, I ran into the Nanotyrannus debate. People have been arguing about Nanotyrannus being valid, but there's a huge problem: No adult specimen. Unless someone has an adult, or even a subadult, specimen of Nanotyrannus (over 15 years old), it isn't a real genus. This is why I am here. I know people collect fossils and post pics of them on here, so I'm willing to see what people may, or may not, have. My question is: Does anybody have an adult Nanotyrannus specimen? In simpler terms, does anybody have a Nanotyrannus fe

    Anyone Collect First Editions?

    While in Phoenix this past week, I made a couple of finds in a couple of used book stores. I wouldn't consider myself a first edition collector, but I was still surprised that you can still find a true first of Gould's classic Wonderful Life for $10. It is certainly not in perfect condition and there's an inscription on the first page from the previous owner, but I guess there's still not much of a market for these? Trade edition book cover: Unbroken number line:
  12. 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

    Poster suggestions

    Hi, I've cleaned up my room and got a empty space on my walls, I'd like to hang a nice paleontology themed poster but I can't decide on any, be it a reconstruction, Victorian plates, informative posters such as geological scales or maps. Thanks for any tip.

    New Microscope Camera!

    Got a new "toy" for my birthday! I was wanting an "upgrade" from my Celestron (which has been quite good - but was a little lacking in some respects) and thanks to the FF members input, I decided to go with the Hayear 14 MP HDMI microscope camera. It was just over twice the price of the Celestron but is much higher resolution (and much easier to capture multiple focus images for stacking). I still like the Celestron for my "picking through matrix" - but I am super excited about getting some better, higher res pics! Interestingly, in comparison, some of the Celestron pics are still better sha
  15. Trying to keep fossils in the country of origin after study. Also, ever dream of fossil hunting in a museum collection? https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/22/science/dinosaurs-fossils-colonialism.html

    Book advice

    Hi, I'm new here. My name is Leo and I'm from Italy. I'm looking for interesting books about paleontology and, in particular, about the transition from water to land. Since I've already read basically everything in Italian (there isn't too much choice actually), I'm looking for something in English. Any advice is welcome
  17. I'd like to get some opinions about the benefits of joining any of the paleo societies or groups that are around. More specifically, is there a benefit for a lay-person in joining? I understand that these offer networking opportunities for the professional, but would there be a benefit for ME as an enthusiast?
  18. Dear members of the fossil forum, this might sound weird, but for school I need to make an online interview for someone who has a career which I'm interested in, does anybody know a paleontologist which I can interview? The interview doesn't have to be today I just need to manage/plan one today before it's 3:30 pm. (As you might be aware the deadline has passed, but I can still manage to find someone as long as it is today. So please it's urgent and I don't want to stress more than I originally was). Kind regards, -oualidbro
  19. Ancient life is a only a recent development in my list of constantly fledgling and passing fascinations, but I suspect that the depth this field has warrants a forever stay for me. ---------------------------------------- Prior to joining the forum in November, my main interests sat with modern squamates (scaled reptiles such as snakes and lizards), and I spent an enormous amount of time "herping", which is the act of finding snakes and other reptiles in
  20. Here is my list of favorite items for geology and paleontology enthusiasts for 2020. Please feel free to add you own selections; give a specific model that you have used or researched. Estwing Geology Hammer, Estwing E6-24PC - Larger head and weight to partly replace small crack hammer and make it easier to hit your target. One piece construction can last a long time. Write in the Rain waterproof notebook, No. 135 - Take notes on your fossil localities. Fits in pocket. Select a bright color and get a good pen or a mechanical pencil with a large diameter lead.

    New Blog

    Back in January, I tore a ligament in my thumb and couldn't do much of anything with my hands for 5 months. I decided to start a paleontology blog on Facebook. Most blogs don't last 6 months and I had my doubts that anyone would read it anyway. Much to my surprise, not only did I keep myself motivated to keep feeding it content, people have actually been reading it. So, this week I launched a web page version free of social media membership, for those not on Facebook. It's a little bit of everything -- field trip reports, cool finds, fossil news and humor, prep projects, and interviews/bios of
  22. Hi Folks, I am looking for some good books on Florida geology and Florida fossils. I don't need any beginner level books - I have them all. I've done a lot of searching on the web, but Florida appears to be a geological wasteland in terms of rock books - not much to be had. This is not surprising, because all of Florida is nothing but sand and limestone. However, I am thinking that surely I must be missing something, so any recommendations are welcome. I am also looking for books on Florida-specific fossils for identification and distribution purposes. Googl
