I just wanted to know what feilds I can work in in the future. I love picking up rocks and fossils, Is there some kind of mix between paleontology and geology? Could I make a living on this kind of job? I am hoping to study in austrailia some day.
I arrived home last week and after few days of reorientation I managed to get down to prepping the few finds I had made there. There was lots to do with family and friends this time around, but I did manage to get out on 2 day trips. I also slipped out to the Georgian Bay shore at Big Bay for a couple of hours and found this 14cm. long orthocone nautiloid. Don't know what to call it yet, so I'd appreciate it if someone could give me an idea. The stratigraphy is upper Ordovician Queenston Formation. The first day trip was with @Monica and Viola. They took me to Etobicoke and Mimico Creeks in the Greater Metropolitan Toronto area, fed me well with such delicacies as smoked meat and brownies and provided me with enough to drink. I kept my finds down to a minimum, threw a bivalve and a brachiopod in the bag, but I was actually concentrating on finding a half decent nautilus, which I eventually did at Etobicoke Creek. Actually there are 3 of them in the block, one on one side and two on the other. Im calling them Treptoceras until someone teaches me better. This matrix is really tough to prep! I still have another one from MImico Creek which I may just end up sanding and polishing. Here are the two shellfish Byssonchia sp.? Not sure at all about that, but I think that the Brachiopod could be Strophomena sp. Uhoh. Running out of bytes. Looks like I'll have to turn the page to get to Kane.
