  1. Pappocetus

    Can anyone please help me find any pictures of pappocetus skulls? There's only one diagram of a lower jaw that I can find, and one site says that it's known from the that type specimen/mandible, and they generally specify if something is known from many specimens. was pappocetus ONLY known from the type specimen? Now the same person, has found a second mandible, I believe, but that's all the mention of any pappocetus fossils found, that I can find mention of anywhere.
  2. Coral Fossil? Or Something Else?

    is this a coral fossil or something else?
  3. Id help

    Been struggling to identifiy this for a few months now...found it on a marine Miocene area, but also land mammals have been found around... I tried searching ulnas, hummerus, femurs...of all the animals I could think of...but either it is a simple chunk of rock or I am missing something... The specimen is around 1p inches long.
  4. Trilobite trouble

    Shall we discuss this Trilobite? I am completely out of luck on IDing it, as there are too many of this type of insect that are so similar, i had a possible match after some research, and judged it to be likely from around 500 million years ago, lost the comparison somewhere though.. My guess is that it is a common specimen.

  7. Is there any way of professionally labeling specimens out in the field? I'm creating a field journal documenting all of my finds, whether archeological or paleontological, and Id like to hear some methods of proper labeling of my finds. Usually I wrap the specimens I store with cheesecloth or even paper towels, cushioned with cotton, then I would label a specimen like the example below: species: paralejuris (Trilobite) date found: June 5, 2006 location: Morroco, Atlas Mt. Range last opened: 6/8/6
  8. Lighted Display Cases

    Earlier this year when my wife and I returned from Tucson with an SUV loaded to the brim with fossils and rocks, and we quickly realized that we had no way to properly display them. We searched and searched for "nice" display cases, but all we could find was plastic snarge. Restoration Hardware was the only place that sold nice specimen display cases, but they were too big, and too expensive. I told my wife "I could make those, and I'd put lights in them!", so I did. We spent the last few months coming up with a good design and making prototypes. Now we've got an entire house full of these things. -Brian
  9. One thing that it seems we do not take as seriously as we should is transitional shark teeth. Scientists have, for centuries attempted to condense specimens into individual species, calling those that do not fit in "odd" teeth and focusing on their neat little groupings. What we forget is that this only represents certain points on the graph, with an infinite amount of possible points in between each! This post was created to allow our community to commemorate and share their best transitional shark teeth specimens from any species, even if those are not confirmed. It is these seemingly extranneous teeth that hold the real answer to evolution. Show us the best transitionals and suspected transitionals you have!
  10. Given the enormous number of repaired Megalodon teeth, which we must endure, and in honor of the new sub-forum here, I thought this might be a good time and place to revisit a classic case. It all began with a simple, but hopeful question, put to the membership here, last year. The item below was the item in question.
  11. Coral Fossil?

    Hello all, I have a find from southern New Jersey. It has many crystalized "veins" running through it, and possibly internal too having a specific gravity of 2.27.....It is not brittle and is very solid, yet lightweight. Underneath shows an off-white color spot, which may be the original color as it has iron color to it now? Any thoughts on this specimen would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking a look. P.S. - Some photos were labeled too large, so I will also provided a link to a photobucket page with more pictures. http://s935.photobucket.com/user/TheeWoodsman/library/red%20rock?sort=3&page=1
