  7. Revisiting a Burgess Shale Monster

    New discoveries in the Cambrian world especially from the Burgess Shale never cease to amaze me. The latest is described in this paper.

  9. Fossils from Norway, Fossil ID.

    Hello guys and girls, I'm new here :-) Could you help me identify these fossils. They are all from my local city of Porsgrunn, Norway. I gathered these over the cause of a few days due to construction work, so I saved them before the whole area is buried under tons of rubble. The first fossil (1-2) around the size of a finger, the "branch" was much longer before I broke it lose, around half a meter. Image 3-5 is the one I am most curious about, could it be a trace fossil of some sort. It's embedded in the shale, some of the lines are 0,5 cm deep. From what I know Image 6 is most likely a Ragusa coral, and Image 7 is probably Stromatolites. The last fossil looks like it fell out of a geode at some point. :-) Most of the local fossils here in Porsgrunn can usually be dated to the Ordovician or early Silurian and they are relatively small in size. Porsgrunn in Telemark is a part of the Oslo Geological Field in Norway, which is a part of the Burgess Shale. The fossils in the Oslo Geological Field can be dated to around the Precambrian era to late Silurian. Thanks :-)
  10. Anomalocaridid Fossils?

    Anyone here have any Anomalocarididae fossils? I do realize that if anyone did they most likely wouldn't be on this site but just wanted to know. I also realize that they are extremely rare but that I've seen things on here comparable when speaking about rarity. (Kinzers Formation PA has confirmed - anomalocaris pennsylvanica.) Thanks;
  11. Cambrian Tectonic Plates

    Anyone have any information on tectonic activity during the Cambrian Period? I am writing a report on tectonic activity on Earth and am going to use the Cambrian to explain the location of the Burgess Shale and Chengjiang formations. So far I have a good idea of what I am doing, just wanted some input from others. I'll reference anyone that responds. Thanks.

  13. Hyolith finds place on the tree of life

    "In the past, hyoliths have been interpreted as being related to molluscs, which are common today and include squid, clams and snails. The new research suggests the animals are in fact more closely related to a different group of shell-bearing organisms, known as lophophorata, which includes brachipods (lamp shells), among others." http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-38585325

  16. Waptia was a good Mom.

    QUOTE "As the oldest direct evidence of a creature caring for its offspring, the discovery adds another piece to our understanding of brood care practices during the Cambrian Explosion, a period of rapid evolutionary development when most major animal groups appear in the fossil record," said Jean-Bernard Caron, curator of invertebrate palaeontology at the Royal Ontario Museum and associate professor in the Departments of Earth Sciences and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto."

  19. Sanctacaris, Cambrian Predator Replica

    This is my Sanctacaris replica I make.
  20. Cambrian Model Aysheaia

    This is another of my Burgess shale replicas
  21. Cambrian Models

    This is my most recent sculpture I have made. I sculpt the original in clay. It usualy takes me a few months to complete a sculpture. When I am happy with the piece, I make a silcone mold of it. With the mold, I am able to cast a model in Urethane plastic. Once it is cast I can clean up the piece and I can airbrush it.
