Brett Breakin' Rocks posted a topic in Partners in Paleontology - Member Contributions to ScienceI finally made it out in July to a location near Charleston I am always mentioning, but had never personally visited. After 3 dry years of no ear bone periotics they started showing up in triplicate this summer. Probably was able to discern their shape better after seeing so many examples. Not much else showed up for me that day save a few tiny teeth. But it led to my first, albeit small donation. Common or Scientific Name: Odontoceti indet. (delphinid periotic ear bone) Geologic Formation: Undetermined - ( Fossil dredge from this site typically contains Oligocene Ashley Formation, Lower Miocene Marks Head Formation, Lower Pliocene Goose Creek Limestone, and Pleistocene Wando Formation ) Geologic Age: Undetermined - Oligocene (?) But potentially Pliocene - Pleistocene Region the fossil was found: Charleston, South Carolina Museum or University that received the fossil: Mace Brown Museum of Natural History at the College of Charleston Reason for donation: Well preserved and perfect for the fossil survey. Found and donated (July 23, 2019) to Dr. Bobby Boessenecker Dr. Bobby Boessenecker - " Ashby (Gale) and I (but mostly Ashby, since he's out more often) have been putting together a collection of riverbank ear bones from West Ashley, Johns Island, and Mount Pleasant, and this is quite a well preserved one that would go nicely into the eventual paper. "
Hi all! I've joined some time ago, but am terrible at actually posting. I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this, but over Memorial Day weekend @Boesse and I traveled to Aurora, NC for the 24th annual Aurora Fossil Fest! We saw multiple collections from people in the North Carolina Fossil Club, including finds from the Lee Creek Mine. We were there representing the Mace Brown Museum of Natural History, and we wrote a blog post up on it! http://blogs.cofc.edu/macebrownmuseum/2017/06/02/friday-fossil-feature-2017-aurora-fossil-fest/ I don't know everyone's handles on this board, but I know @sixgill pete , @SailingAlongToo, @aerogrower, @Al Dente, @Jniederkorn, @Daleksec were all there! Sorry if I've missed someone, feel free to let me know handles of people I missed
