  1. Throwing Shade When you look at beautiful fossil leaves, have you ever wondered what the forest was like? Was the leaf from a tall tree, hogging the sun at the top of the forest? Or did it grow in the understory, in the shadows of big trees above? Perhaps we can figure that out. Please join our next online meeting of the DPS at 7pm on Wednesday, October 14th, when we will hear how to “see the forest from the leaves”. Joe Milligan, PhD candidate at Baylor University, will speak on "Sycamores shine a light on ancient canopy structure”. Joe has a BS in Environmental Science from the University of Maryland Baltimore County, and an MA in Earth and Environmental Science from Wesleyan University. He is doing several research projects for his doctorate, including estimating the CO2 content of the ancient atmosphere from fossil leaves, which is supported by a scholarship from the DPS. In this work he studied living trees which were grown in different shade conditions, and determined how the leave shape, microstructure, and even the carbon isotope composition are effected. Sycamores are one of our most beautiful trees, and distinctive fossils, so it will be fun to learn how they might tell us about the structure of ancient forests. Wednesday, October 14th, will also be National Fossil Day! We will celebrate with two short talks on fossils that can be seen in our national parks. Tom Dill will give a short walking tour of giant spiral beaver burrows along the Daemonelix Trail in Agate Fossil Beds in Nebraska, and Estée Easley will talk about Florissant Fossil Beds in Colorado, and their virtual displays and online activities. So stay online after the main presentation to see more fossils. Please join our Zoom meeting by clicking on this link: https://zoom.us/j/92213920218?pwd=N0l4eXhtQW9lOU1uQVp5OGh3OUFWdz09 Or start the Zoom app and join the Meeting ID: 922 1392 0218, with the Passcode: 466780. Remember that you are on camera if your video feed is on, and that we can hear everything if you have your microphone on. Please be responsible about what you sending out to the world. If you move your mouse over the Zoom window, controls will appear where you can turn on and off your audio and video “feeds” to the meeting. During the presentations we will mute everyone’s audio, but if you come in late, be sure to mute yourself. You can submit questions for the speaker in the chat box, typing “QUESTION” to make them stand out. We will read them at the end in the order received, or unmute people to ask their questions.
  2. Fossil books online

    My first post! Someone here mentioned this book, Fossils For Amateurs, well, you can borrow it for free online at The Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/fossilsforamateu00macf Also, this site has a ton of free reading material on fossils: https://archive.org/details/books?and[]=fossils&sin= Let me know if you find something interesting to read there. Thanks Jk
  3. FREE ONLINE EVENING LECTURE The why, what, when and how of the first animal skeletons. Heads Up people looks like an interesting lecture but you need to register and it starts on Wednesday 1 July 7pm BST https://event.webinarjam.com/register/69/2zzrmhlq
  4. Hi!! As wide as the internet is, I've found quite a lot of sites where, apparently, dinosaur fossils are sold. I've found a particular site in which there are Deltadromeus Agilis teeth. My question is: ¿Is this, you know, real? ¿Is it a fake? At least, it looks real on the image. Thanks to anyone who answers this post!
  5. Hey Everyone! I've really come to appreciate all the help and support that this community offers. I feel privileged to live in a time and place where it is so easy to stay connected with others who share interest in our pursuit to uncover the mystery of deep time. I suppose that I should start off by introducing myself in case you haven't had the pleasure yet. So. Here goes: Hi! My name is Nicholas Perlenfein. I’m a student at College of the Redwoods currently pursuing an AST in Geology. I have an intense interest in studying fossils the genesis of which lies very early in the most dormant memories of my childhood. I hope one day to become a paleontologist or maybe a fossil preparator. I’m currently enrolled in my colleges English 1A course and have been assigned to conduct primary research in the form of a recorded interview regarding the discourse within my desired carrier and major. We are directed to schedule an interview with a professional in a relevant field and ask them about how peers within the profession choose to communicate and what ethics are held by the community at large. I felt that someone on TTF must work at a natural history museum, or knows someone they can put me into contact with, or at the very least, point me in the right direction? I understand that during these difficult times that people are very busy, I know for a fact that my schedule has been greatly disrupted. As stated before, I am looking to conduct an online interview, we can do Skype, zoom etc. of about 30 to 45 minutes that I can record in order to refer back to whilst writing my essay. Its crucial i be able to record the interview so, if you're not comfortable with that, although I would be thrilled to talk to you, I sadly won't be able to use our conversation for this assignment. I just want to thank everyone reading this one more time for making me feel so welcome in the community. I look forward to your replies. -Nick
  6. Greetings kind people, Hope you are having a nice day:) There was a similar thread posted around the same topic, but a lot of those websites could not meet all my requirements so I'm here to seek help I'm looking for websites which are: 1) reliable and reputable 2) very inexpensive 3) ship internationally (particularly India) with good packaging and reasonable prices 4) good quality and vast collection 5) can provide most of my requirements in a single order(since I'll be shipping it to India, it would be economical to order everything from single website to cut down on transportation costs). I'll take down the post in case of violations of the guidelines. Please do let me know. Thanks in advance:)
  7. Raptor Bone?

    Hi is this a raptor bone? I found it online the size is 0.9 by 1.8 cm.
  8. Good Websites to ID Fossils.

    I was wondering if theirs any good websites to identify a wide range of things (shark teeth, bones, cephalopod, fish, ray teeth, coral, etc). individual website will be helpful to but preferably one with a lot of fossil ID.

  10. Hi, Does anyone know of any specialist fossil booksellers Preferably UK based, and with an online presence. Thanks
  11. Hello! I'm a pretty new collector, and I'm currently looking to purchase a Megalodon tooth for myself. They've been a dream of mine to have for a long time now, so I'm happy I might finally have a chance! I took a glance at a few websites, and found this. Is it real? Is it fake? (And, whichever it is how can you tell?)
  12. Today I was scrolling through our favorite auction site when I spotted this, I immediately noticed something was off just looking at its title, this piece was being listed as a dinosaur skull with jaws, it already had quite a few people bidding for it. It was quite clearly not a dinosaur skull, I messaged the seller and I feel like he shouldn't list this and label it as something that is extremely desired by any fossil collector(and possibly illegal depending on where it was found). Regards, indominus rex
  13. What vertebra is this?

    Hello, I found this vertebra for sale online. I was wondering what animal it belonged to, my first thought is bison but it could be something else. The seller says its from deposits of the northern sea from a Pleistocene deposit. It's 22 cm in length and is 8,5 cm wide. That's all the information the seller gave. Please feel free to leave any remarks as to what it can be.
  14. I saw those fossils online,i wonder are the real onces or is it a replica...
  15. I'm pretty new to fossil collecting, however I'd like to dive right in. I've been looking at the FossilShack, however I was wondering if there are any other reputable dealers within the US? I've heard eBay is a great place, but I don't know which dealers to avoid, does anyone know of any? I'm also interested in buying an authentic looking replica for a friends birthday. I don't want to pay a fortune (college student), but I'm mainly looking complete skulls and claws. Thanks!
  16. Gone to youtube in hope of showing newbie how working with fossils and tools look like however not many videos like how to drill or work on certain fossils from scratch. Anyone know of any full length videos people can watch ?
  17. Found these online. I suspect they're fakes. Beware. Not surprising if they are fake, besides, they're from China. (not saying that all fossils being sold from China are fake.)
