  1. Weird stuff/cool stuff

    I have some pictures of weird creatures that I had been collecting online(pictures, not creatures), but never getting around to anything with them, and I keep having to delete them to make room, so I figured I'd just make a thread dedicated to the idea, instead of a thread each time there's a crazy knew whatever I come across. Please feel free to give any info or thoughts, answers or questions about anything brought up, and if there's any weird or particularly cool creature you want to mention, go ahead and post about it, preferably with a picture. it's ok if you don't have a picture, for instance someone might not even know what it's called, and can only describe it some. go right ahead and bring up something new anytime, or to bring something from earlier back up, even if it hasn't been talked about in awhile. If you're posting about something that's not currently being talked about, just be sure to either start by quoting something about it from before, or just preface your post with what thing you're talking about, that way people will know what you're talking about, and won't get confused. If something is getting heavy discussion, anyone can start a new thread to move discussion of that creature over, to make it easier, but if you do, make sure you post the link to the new discussion thread, for everyone! *to avoid confusion, if you're not continuing the discussion from the previous post, just be sure to refer to what you're talking about.
  2. without a doubt, fish fossils are my favorite type of fossils. the fact something so squishy at first can be turned into stone in a million years or 2 absolutely FASCINATES me. i also have not seen much "lets see your latest" discussions, so i decided to make this .
  3. Starting from scratch

    dittmars12862-015-0568-x.pdf object of contention(from the GAO article,which is freely accessible online and/or might be in several libraries here on this very forum : Dinosaurs/feathers or hair ,external appearance of extinct vertebrates, possible host-/parasite co-evolution,would the past biogeography of host and parasites coincide,,,,etc
  4. Of all the geologic ages in the fossil record, which is your favourite? I'd have to go with the Cambrian, being the oldest Paleozoic period. The fossils of this age are also some of the most interesting due to the incredible diversity of invertebrate fossils (courtesy of the Cambrian Explosion). Many of the creatures preserved in Cambrian formations such as the Burgess Shale are critters you won't see anywhere else in the fossil record.
  5. I've been known to be sentimental at times. I drift in and out of The fossil Forum as my life ebbs and flows, leading me in different directions. Yet sitting here reading all of your wonderful posts, it made me wonder "What inspired all of these people to fall in love with fossils?". We all have our own unique journey, and I'd love to hear yours. My journey began as a very young child. My father is and was an extremely scientific and nature loving man. I grew up surrounded with dinosaur books, digging in the dirt, and nature in all shapes and forms. Growing up and being homeschooled, I spent many days on digs and field trips with the University of Kansas Paleontology team. My family owned a large swath of forest in eastern Kansas, so my free time was spent digging through shale for ferns or cracking into limestone in search of crinoids and ammonites. (My parents still have a 22 inch Permian ammonite that I found in the river bottoms when I was 10.) Fossils were all I thought about, I remember on long road trips, looking out the window and imagining what the world must have looked like so many millions of years ago. Suddenly, in the chalk flats of western Kansas, mosasaurs and megaladons were battling it out for supremacy. I completely fell in love with these great ancient creatures. Today, my life is far more complex. I'm an entrepreneur who runs a number of companies, my wife and I are expecting our first child, the sands of time have moved on... Yet I still haven't lost that wonder, the bubbly sensation in my gut whenever I discover a trilobite, or visit a museum and see the grandeur of a T-Rex. With fossils my inner child is awakened, my soul comes alive... I believe that our society is missing something, in our mass amnesia and our obsession with the ephemeral... We're missing a sense of wonder, my friends. And holding a fossil so ancient, so lasting and steadfast, seems to give us continuity and peace in our ever changing world. Please share your stories my friends! I would love to hear! Dylan (PS, wasn't sure which category this should be in. Mods, please feel free to assign accordingly.)
