  1. Theres no way I'm the only one, but I think a fossil display with models incorporated take display and immersion to the next level. The creature alongside the evidence it left behind, makes such museum like feel in appearance and enhances the appreciation and wonder. Heres a thread to post any fossils you have on display alongside a model, statue, or toy. Here is a display from my collection of one of my favorite prehistoric creatures postosuchus alongside a giant 10inch+ chirotherium pos/neg footprint.
  2. What is the most rare fossil on your collection? I think the most rare fossil on my collection is a Huntoniantonia huntonensis (my profile photo). You?
  3. databases

    I want to start an actual computer database for my collection. I want to find a free downloadable database. Does anyone out there have any input? At work I use FileMaker Pro. I designed the database for our collections and it works well, but it costs 500 plus bucks (300 for academic use, which is what we paid). I do not want to pay that sort of money, or any if possible. I looked into Specify, but they seem to be only for actual museums and not for home collections, or so it seems on the download page. What, if anythng do you folks use?

  5. Mazon Creek Research Help

    Hello, I am a local undergrad geology student working on a research project dealing with Mazon Creek's Braidwood and Essex Biota. As part of this research, I am required to collect specimens and data on both of these assemblages present. I have been informed that any access to the Fish and Wildlife areas in the Mazonia-Braidwood South Unit is prohibited due to the Illinois DNR's indefinite closure of all fish and wildlife areas, so I am taking this time to research and inquire about access to both assemblages for future reference. That being said, my questions are as follows: Are there certain areas within the public access sites that I should specifically be searching within that may contain a large diversity of specimens available for collection? Are there any landowners within the Braidwood Biota that are easy to contact and willing to allow people to collect on their land? Are there any public access sites to the Braidwood Biota or to the Mazon River itself for collecting? Are there any papers or articles I can reference that may aid me in my research? Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer!
  6. The title was blunt to the point, & I was thinking. Let's hope this is far away, but still the fact is not going away. Ok we all know we have a passion for certain things here & have a collection going on. I'm curious what is others plan for their collection, once .........gone ? I know the simple thing is to will it to kin, though do they appreciate it ? And would they pawn it off as soon as they get ? I would assume if over time if need be you'd sell off to pay bills etc... Though what if your kin is not so much into your collection & you were not able to sell it off. Do you will it to a museum where many people can appreciate it, if its of interest an worthy for that museum. Or just say I don't care where it goes I'm dead.
  7. Does anyone keep extant shark teeth in their fossil shark teeth collections for comparison and reference? Is it poor form to ask for an ID on this forum of an extant tooth to see if it is related to a fossil tooth?
  8. I'm running out of room on my little shelf, so I was curious how you guys display YOUR fossils! I could use some ideas, as well as an excuse to see your guys's awesome collections!
  9. Fossil Cataloging

  11. The best of.....

    Hello, I am quite curious as to what your prized possessions are. You can post about 2 images. I will start with mine. My personal favorite is my Tethysaurus vertebrae, it was either this or my Keichousaurus but I felt like this was more "special" than my Keichousaurus.
  12. Southern California???

    I'm down in the Palmdale/Lancaster Area on business for the next month and a half or so. Really want to get out and do a hunt or take a peek at some collections. I'm planning on hitting up the Ernst Quarry this month, but I'd love to get out in the field with a few collectors. I'm also a sucker for collections and love taking a look at what people have found. I understand not many people want to be giving out locations to people so i'm not asking for anything like that, heck I'll wear a blindfold to a location, I just enjoy getting out there and hunting with new friends. If anyone wants a tag along please let me know!
  13. I found a unique fossil cluster. It has a bone cemented into it! It has barnacles, and it's formed on a Jefferson Scallop. I found it in Virginia, United States.
  14. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. Anyone else out there with extreme budget rare finds especially shark teeth (or from generally exotic locations), feel free to share and I'd love to see! In order of pictures: 1) Two megs and a hemi from Isabella, Puerto Rico 2) meg from Hawaii (Restored) 3) great white from Japan 4) meg from Morocco 5) meg from Cuba (unfortunately stuck on a wood plate but still a lovely display piece) 6) meg from the Phillipines 7) cubutensis from Peru 8) 2 Makos from Mexico 9 & 10) Heavily and horribly restored 5.9 inch Chilean meg (funny story with this one had an even worse restoration on it with made it look no different from a replica, was suspicious and bought it and when attempting a horrible derestoration process and a few slight touch ups of my own a large chilean meg was hiding under the mess, still needs a tad bit of work but I still love I was able to snag a large one cheap in this day and age ) @WhodamanHD Here we go uploaded !
  15. The Fossil Forum has reached an important milestone: we now have 1,000 fossils with pictures and descriptions in our collections section. We beat our fellow paleontology website MyFossil to the 1,000 mark even though they had a big head start; they started in November 2014 while we started last September. Check out the quality fossils and posts at MyFossil: http://www.myfossil.org/. I encourage everyone to help create the best online digital collection of fossils in the world. Take a look at your best fossils and see if we could use a picture of it in our digital fossil collection. I have seen a lot of fossils in FF posts that are worthwhile to add to our collection.
