  2. For the last year I have been working on the first part of my 3D animated documentary series about prehistoric Earth. The first episode will take you to Hadean eon 4.6 - 4 billion years ago and tell about the formation of our planet, moon, emergence of water and, finally the first life. The full documentary is pretty much done and is being edited at the moment (voice over, sound effects, etc.). Finally, here is the trailer for Part 1 (everything is CGI and done by me). Not sure yet about distribution methods. Anyways, here is the teaser:
  3. Im not sure what this is

  6. I found a couple pieces of what I think to be Dinosaur Bones and possibly a scute from my Uncle's property a while back in Canon City, CO. Canon City is known for Late Jurassic dinosaurs. I'm definitely not an expert, but it looks like I possibly found an Ankylosaurus scute? Can someone tell me anything about these bones? One of the bones even looks like it has bite marks or claw marks. Not sure....I could be wrong. Any info would help, thanks!
  7. Help Id - 2 Piece fossil

    I need help identifying the attached fossil. It is split into two pieces but can combine into one. It was acquired from a local estate sale so I do not know any details about it. Please help.
  8. Help! Really weird looking rock

  9. This website has a google earth like layout, you type in your address (or where you found your fossil) and it shows you what it may have looked like, however many years you put it. It starts from the present day and goes back to 700 million years. Anyone who wants, can give it a try. I can't guarantee its accuracy. http://dinosaurpictures.org/ancient-earth/#0
  10. What are your favorite books on prehistoric topics? Mine are "popular" books.... "Prehistoric Life: The Definitive Visual History of Life on Earth " by DK press- I love how logically it is laid out and how beautifully it is illustrated. "The Story of Life in 25 Fossils: Tales of Intrepid Fossil Hunters and the Wonders of Evolution" by Donald R. Prothero. This book taught me a lot about transitional fossils. I am looking for other good books. So, what are yours?
  11. Unusual Mollusk Shell?

    I found this on the Wisconsin shore of Lake Michigan near Racine. It appears to be a hollowed section of a mollusk shell. I have never ran across such a large cavity (about 1-1/4" across and almost 3" long). Also there is a unusual formation inside. Anyone help? Should I grind it down to expose cross section?
  12. Fossil ID Inquiry

    Hello. While vacationing along Lake Huron in Michigan, I found a rather impressive, and likely rare, fossil (see image). It is clearly a vertebrate with skull, spine, appendages, and pelvic region relatively intact and clearly visible. The specimen is approximately 2 inches by 2 inches in size. Any advice or direction, as to whom I should contact to identify/analyze my find would be most appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.
  13. I wanted to share some of my projects with all of you. A hobby and side business of mine is creating dinosaur sculptures. I do all different kinds of things aside from dinos too, but to keep it relevant, we’ll stick to the mesozoic Featured in my profile picture is my raptor created from scrap metal used to construct railings. I named him Bambi (ironically not a Bambiraptor). Probably more like Deinonychus, he’s a pretty big chicken, but you let me know what you think. As of now he’s my favorite creation, hence why he’s featured in my profile pic. Still trying to figure out the paint job. I wish he’d stop scaring all the birds and deer away...
  14. Fossil or painted artifact

  15. Hello all! Just like to ask if anyone can provide me some locations in/near Toronto, Ontario in Canada, of fossil sites free for the public to collect, that does not require hammering into rocks? Cuz I know of some quarries, but I have to hammer some rocks in order to find fossils. So what I'm saying, is that, whether there are places in Canada, where I can find fossils lying on the ground for me to pick up without any restrictions? Are there? Responses are appreciated, as always.

  23. LUCKILY, PREHISTORIC PEOPLE DIDN'T BRUSH THEIR TEETH. OTIS HISTORICAL ARCHIVES NAT'L MUSEUM OF HEALTH & MEDICINE / WIKIMEDIA COMMONS By Lindsay Dodgson 22/09/2016, 14:47 New archaeological research may have revealed that the original 'paleo diet' contained wheat and barley, and was not just restricted to meat and vegetables as the current diet typically is. Scientists from Cambridge, Cardiff, UCL and York Universities studied the remains of nine people who lived around 9,000 years ago in the late Mesolithic (6600 - 6450 BC) and the Mesolithic-Neolithic phases (6200 - 5900 BC) and found plant matter fossilised in their teeth. Thanks to poor dental hygiene, micro-fossils were trapped in ancient plaque on their teeth. The researchers say these plaques contain plants — cereals, in fact — that weren't thought to be part of people's diets for another four centuries. "There has been a long-standing view that for the most of the Palaeolithic times, but also in the Mesolithic, animal protein coming from meat and fish was the main staple food with a very limited role of plant foods," lead researcher Dusan Borić told Business Insider. Mysteries were revealed from human teeth remains.Dr Dušan Borić / Cardiff People in the Mesolithic period are generally believed to have been hunter-gatherers and lived in vast woodlands. The Neolithic, or New Stone Age, came afterwards, and it's then that people were believed to have first planted cereal crops and developed agriculture. The discovery of domestic cereals in Mesolithic people's diets means that social networks between local foragers and the first Neolithic communities probably extended further than archaeologists originally thought, due to how deep into the Balkan hinterland they were found. "At the time of the discovery we had the sense that these groups of complex hunter-gatherers were in contact with other more distant locations," Borić said. "We found beads made of marine gastropods that come from coastal areas in Greece and the Adriatic, hundreds of kilometres away from the region for instance."

  24. Interesting Vertebra

    Hello, I am back! If you didn't know, I buy fossils on the internet sometimes. On EBay, I found a cheap vertabrae. It was only worth 5$ and they said it seemed fossilized, so why not buy it. I got it now, and it definitely is fossilized, just I have no clue what it belongs to. If anyone knows what it might be, tell me. Bye! -Con
  25. Hi guys, I found this along with my grandfather's rock collection a few years ago. I can't tell you where it is from because The Old Man isn't around to ask. But if you guys could help me find out what this may be. It is shaped much like a tooth, about 5 1/2 inch long and about 3 inches across at the top and about a 1/2 inch at the tip. I'm not very educated about these things, so all thoughts and information/questions you may have will be helpful. ThanksIn Advance, FlyingBaldini
