  4. Hi, I found this fossil in Turkey a few days ago.

    Hi, I found this fossil in Turkey a few days ago. Its arrangement is like a mechanical object of our time. What do you think might happen?
  5. I found this bone in Florida's Peace River in a gravel bed that contained Pleistocene and Holocene land vertebrates. I am unsure about this bone. Is it a small deer, or is it a turkey bone? Or, am I entirely wrong and it's an alligator? Thanks in advance! MikeG

  7. Miosen Corbula

    Hi everybody. Today I want to ask your comment about these Corbula species. On the area there is only Corbula carinata reported by Lutfiye Erunal-Erentoz (1958). But when I check the samples I saw some differences. They are all find in the same formation: Tırtar Formation - Serravalian (Turkey-Karaman-Seyithasan (like my other collectings and sharing)) Thanks and best regards.
  8. Miocene shell

    A very thin and fragile shell. 50-60 mm. Turkey/Karaman/Tırtar formation - Serravalian
  9. Anarta sp.

    From the album Karaman Basin

  10. While researching a question on species naming rules, I came across an interesting story about Turkey making changes to species names against the ICZN Code because Turkey found the names offensive. Names referring to Armenia and Kurdistan were changed. See quotes from a BBC article as mentioned in The Armenian Weekly: https://armenianweekly.com/2009/03/04/learnings-from-the-sari-gelin-case/ Can you imagine the outcry amongst scientists if the names of Megalonxy jeffersonii or Washingtonia filifera (the only native palm in Arizona) were changed because some in the US found the names of slaveholders, Presidents Washington and Jefferson, offensive.
  11. Fun day on the North Sulphur River Texas. We saw some cool wildlife. Here's my finds. A nice mix of pleisosaur, mosasaur, enchodus, shark, turtle, horse, coprolite and artifacts.
  12. Miocene find from Turkey

  14. unknown fossils on rock from the sea

    Hello. I was on holiday in Turkey in summer of 2015, in Kemer, and i found a big rock, half the size of a bowling ball, that had some white formations on it, which you can see in the picture attached. The formations looked like petrified worms, almost like spaghetti. There were many such formations all over the rock. They were not very long, 2-4 cm I would estimate. Can you please help me find out what these white formations are? are they some kind of fossilized worms or some other sea creatures? Thank you.
  15. New fossil croc from Turkey

    A new paper is available online that will surprise all of you: Stéphane Jouve; Volkan Sarıgül; J.-Sébastien Steyer; Sevket Sen, 2017. The first crocodylomorph from the Mesozoic of Turkey (Barremian of Zonguldak) and the dispersal of the eusuchians during the Cretaceous. Journal of Systematic Palaeontology. Online edition. doi:10.1080/14772019.2017.139346. I remember that Turkey has yielded the remains of the extinct ape Ankarapithecus but also extinct rodents, but the discovery of Turcosuchus may surprise some paleontologists due to its location in northern Anatolia and the rugged, mountainous terrain of Anatolia. However, it is important to note that the vast majority of Mesozoic deposits in the Mideast are marine in origin, and that Embasaurus and Karatausuchus are the only archosaur species described from Oxfordian-Barremian deposits in Central Asia so far. However, the occurrence of Hylaeochampsidae in Europe indicates that some primitive eusuchians made it to Europe from Central Asia via Anatolia, considering that tetrapod fossils have been found in Early Cretaceous bauxite deposits in Romania.
  16. Hello again after 1 year.And sorry again if my English is bad or not enough. It is finally my last year to graduate and start a job as a archeologist. On my free times, i go to beach and try to find some fossils. However,there is nearly no fossil sites in my country and a place which is poor about fossils. I go to beach every day, but all i found is some worthless sand dollars, I didn't have financial situation to travel abroad either. I would like to buy some for my collection.I will love to hear your suggestions. Also, if you can give me some fossil hunting advices, it will be much appreciated. Thank you,
  17. Thanksgiving

    Just wanted to wish all the forum members a Happy Thanksgiving!!
  18. My Life As A Turkey

    Does the PBS documentary My Life as a Turkey open an ancient window into possible behavior of young Dino's such as Oviraptor or others? If you haven't seen it take an hour to watch it, you'll thank me later! http://video.pbs.org/video/2168110328/
