Conglomerate fossil bone puerto rico
GallinaPinta posted a topic in Fossil IDHello, I think I found my first serious fossil!! Up until now, I always found invertebrate and plant fossils like echinoids and giant oysters, but recently after fossil hunting last week at my favorite spot, the San Sebastián Limestone, I stumbled upon something absolutely incredible. I was rushing to get home cause it was getting dark and the river was getting pretty cold, but I tripped over this huge stone. I saw the shadow of something stuck and quickly put it in my backpack, swam and crossed the river and bought it home thinking it was some kind of fossilized wood. It is very, very heavy.

I was really amazed about the fact that, despite the immense disparity in body-size between the extinct sea-cow and its extant relatives, their heads/crania were remarkably similar to each other in overall dimensions. The sea-cow skull was larger, but not by as much as one would think.

Hello together, I am interested in all things cetacean, but also sirenians, desmostylia, pinnipedia or maybe marine reptiles. What I can offer are some carpatian cave bear bones including a complete paw of which I dont know if its composite. mammut jaw fragments, big bovine and cervid skull fragments and similar stuff. i could also offer to custom build skeletal models, although I can´t guarantee for quality or fast delivery (depending on what you may want) I also could offer an yet unpainted (or painted, if you wish) resin model of dunkleosteus terelli, bought from
Hi all! The Mace Brown Museum of Natural History will have a table in the community center this saturday at the Aurora Fossil Festival. I'm currently trying to write up the marine mammal assemblage from Belgrade Quarry, which appears to be transitional between the upper Oligocene Chandler Bridge Formation here in Charleston and the late early Miocene assemblage from the Pungo River Formation in the Lee Creek Mine. Bring your Belgrade marine mammal specimens to our table, I'd like to see them! Several members of this group and the exceedingly generous North Carolina Fossil Club have already don
