  1. Coral fossil? Found around Eiffel Tower

    Kicked up this fossil around the Eiffel Tower looks similar to coal fossils I’ve found but I’m not sure what exactly it is
  2. This past Wednesday I got to meet Trix in person, and is she beautiful or what?? I immediately fell in love with her. I could have stayed and looked at her for hours, but it was crowded and sweltering in the building (all buildings actually) so we didn’t stay too long. We also toured the Museum of paleontology, but by the time I made it to the third floor (husband and child chose to sit that floor out) I practically ran through it, it was just too hot to stroll around leisurely anymore. So the photos aren’t my best, but it’s what you get.
  3. Campanile giganteum

    The shell of a giant snail.
  4. The National museum of Natural History in Paris, France is absolutely fantastic and anyone with even a passing interest in palaeontology or the natural world should have visited this museum at least once in their lives. It's truly a sight to behold. The museum consists of three buildings and a botanical garden. The first building is the Great Gallery of Evolution. This contains a vast array of stuffed animals. they also have a few specimens of extinct animals like the Quagga and the Tasmanian Wolf. Deep sea creatures Tasmanian Wolf or Thylacinus cynocephalus Equus quagga quagga There is a lot more to see in this gallery but I don't have many more interesting pictures. The second building is the Gallery of Mineralogy and Geology. But I haven't actually entered this building, so I don't have any pictures of it. What makes this museum complex really special though, is the Gallery of Palaeontology and Comparative Anatomy. Photos do not do it justice by a long shot, you need to see it for yourself. To begin with, the hall has wonderful architecture and is really well lit. This is where they keep all the skeletons and fossils. The ground floor contains skeletons of modern animals. The thing is, that there are hundreds of skeletons there to see. This is the best place for studying comparative anatomy. A really cool half Elephant's skull so you can see inside. And now on to fossils...
  5. Hey everybody! After a long three weeks, my journey in England and West Europe is finally coming to an end. I will post a separate thread when I get home about all the fossilferous adventures we had with friends from the fossil community abroad! Now the following post is quite a long story so please bear with me. Earlier today I ran into some problems with customs when taking the train back to London from Gare du Nord. Previously during my trip I purchased a Moroccan partial mosasaur skull along with a Fox Hills Placenticeras (could be Sphenodiscus?) from a good friend in Amsterdam. Along the way I also acquired smaller items like some ammonites (from Normandy and Morocco?) from other parties. I have added some pictures of the items below. All these were withheld by customs there as they "needed to check the legality of the fossils for export". Unfortunately I do have a flight to catch tomorrow and it may take a few weeks for their sanctioned expert to examine and (hopefully) approve the release of the fossils. I can understand coming from their viewpoint that some of these fossils look quite impressive (I overheard some of the officers exclaiming "c'est magnifique!" when they saw the fossils) so they would want to check if any of them are important specimens that may have been stolen or smuggled illegally. From a collector's point of view, these are pretty common fossils and it feels silly to question these when the biggest European fossil show (St. Marie) is about to happen on their doorstep! It is also quite unfortunate that I did not have any papers or documentation for the fossils due to the informal nature of acquiring these. The customs officers were actually pretty friendly and apologetic that we had to wait a few hours (and postpone our train as a result) for their paperwork on the fossils to be finished. Other than a 2 page report on the situation and a promise of them getting back within 2-3 weeks, I do not have any other way to know what is happening however. Anyway, I would like to request the help of anyone here who may know a way to expedite the process with French customs(may know a contact there?) or may be able to coordinate shipping these fossils back (at my cost) with customs should they be released. I do fear that whomever expert they call upon may not actually understand the types and nature of commercially available fossils and I also worry about the logistics of bringing them back. Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks for looking and I hope to post a happier thread about my other adventures when I get home!
