  1. We’re Hardly Using Any Of Our Fossils The vast majority are languishing in museum storage. Is it time to dig them up all over again? By Cara Giaimo Atlas Obscura, September 26, 2018 https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/fossil-online-database The paper is: Marshall, C.R., Finnegan, S., Clites, E.C., Holroyd, P.A., Bonuso, N., Cortez, C., Davis, E., Dietl, G.P., Druckenmiller, P.S., Eng, R.C. and Garcia, C., 2018. Quantifying the dark data in museum fossil collections as palaeontology undergoes a second digital revolution.

  2. Fossil Forum Family, Soon I’ll be making a trip over to southern Italy (in the Apulia and then Sicily Catania area) . Don’t know what my trip will consist of because I’m always all over the place when I’m there...but in the event I have some time to kill, does anybody have any suggestions for any cool dino activities, like must see footprints, fossils, museums, etc? I was thinking of making a trip to Altamura, where I hear that there are many dinosaur tracks to see. I may also make a trip over to Naples. I hear it has a cool dino museum there. Lastly, anyone know of any cool areas for fossil hunting/collecting ? (Namely Mesozoic fossils) Thanks everyone
  3. Opening June 2019 after a long hiatus the Smithsonian is working hard to keep themselves fresh and interesting with a completely new fossil hall. Here is a quick snapshot they released. https://naturalhistory.si.edu/deeptime/ FedEx was used to transport T rex to be refurbished
  4. Hello, does anyone know if there are any great fossil hunting sites in Asia? I'm going to Chiang Mai, Thailand this summer for a week, will be happy to know if there is some. Other fossil hunting sites in Asia countries are also welcomed. By the way, are there any marvelous natural history/ fossil museums in Thailand?
  5. The Utah Natural History museum held their annual DinoFest this weekend so I was able to get some great pictures of the new skeleton of Teratophoneus, 80% complete. The skull Here are some close ups of Teratophoneus teeth Now for the foot claws!
  6. Bratislava Slovakia

    Off to Bratslavia, Slovakia in June. Anyone know of any sites to dig, shops/museums to visit? A trip down the Danube to Vienna is on the cards with an overnight stay too. Thanks!
  7. I've been a member of the Milwaukee Public Museum for a few years now since I've had kids. That occasional school trip to the museum always fascinated me and brought wonders of the ancient world to my mind. It's almost unchanged since I was a boy, but I find new enjoyment from watching my children learn, explore, and imagine the way I did when I was younger. This museum isn't the greatest in the nation by any means, but it's the biggest in southeastern Wisconsin. Unfortunately Milwaukee isn't the industrial city it once was, and the museum doesn't get the funds to do much updating. The updating they do is more tailored at putting in new electronics instead of real geological treasures. The museum works the same as most, moving in evolutionary time for the fossils records. Most of the museum is dedicated to the Holocene epoch(probably 90%) instead of fossils, but I'll show some pictures from the more fossil heavy areas. They also have an online learning center called the Virtual Silurian Reef which can be accessed here... https://www.mpm.edu/content/collections/learn/reef/index.html I've found a lot of useful information about the area from this page such as that quarry in Racine I posted about in the Wisconsin thread. The plesiosaur and mammoth are at the entrance by the Imax and away from the main evolutionary trail.
  8. Scipionyx samniticus

    Hi everyone, This summer I am going to Italy and was wondering in which museum the all-famous Scipionyx samniticus holotype is housed. Thanks for any help, Christian
  9. Opinions Needed Please!

    Hello Everyone, I'm an avid paleophile and social researcher doing work on natural history museums. I am interested in talking to people who love fossils! I am doing a survey and want to invite you to take it: Survey for the public: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DFX55S6 Survey for the paleontology community: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/67RNCMW You might fall into both categories! Please feel free to take them both if you want to. Only 10 questions apiece. The purpose of this survey is to ask people what they know about fossil collecting for commercial purposes, and what they think about this. I really want to get more perspectives on this issue. Ultimately I will be presenting the data at a conference and then publishing it open-access. I want to bring "amateurs" and the public into the conversation about the market! As a museum professional, I don't think my motivations and thoughts on this topic reflect any of those currently being circulated by the media, and I think it's simply wrong to leave people out of this conversation. Thanks for your time, I appreciate it! - Francis B. PS you can send me a private message if you want to talk about this further, I am all ears.
  10. Hello all, I will be going to Japan(specifically Tokyo, Nara and Osaka prefectures) on a free & easy trip end of this month, and was hoping if anyone on TFF can share with me if there are places to go for fossil-related activities. I have heard that the National Science Museum in Tokyo and Natural History Museum in Osaka are worth visiting, any reviews? I am also hoping to pay a visit to any markets or shops that are known for offering fossil material(too bad the Tokyo Mineral show is not on!). I am not sure if Japan has dig-tours for tourists, would really like to get in on one too! Thank you all for your time! Han
