I can’t go out hunting fossils but one of my goals this year is to prep a full Oreodont skeleton

Good question. Hard to answer. Of course I'd like to find something that I haven't found before, esp. a new species, but what could that be? Or at least more and better examples of the rare things that I haven't found much of thus far. In my area you have to take what the rocks offer you!

I could more easily answer what I'd like to find in the Mailbox Formation, but that's for another topic I guess.

I'd like to explore all the Upper Jurassic sites in my region and at least make sure there's nothing in most of them.

I wanna sort out my recent finds and organise a thematic collection, small but representative  - there are concretions and stuff waiting to be prepped. I have no intention of hoarding 150 fossils of the same type.

I also plan to make comprehensive posts here about our Upper Jurassic material, Volgian stage and ammonite features.

And finally I'd like to visit the marine reptile site and find a skull there:thumbsu: (not garanteed due to water level schedule, maybe I'll have to wait for another year). Besides skulls I'd be glad to find reptile teeth, crustacean material, nautilus, crinoid calyx, echinoid shells, substantial fish remains (all Upper Jurassic and next to impossible)

I dearly want to find a Pterosaur Fossil of any kind, looking in Holzmaden and Solnhofen ;)

I have two children under 2, so my top goal is to live vicariously through the amazing finds on this forum.  Looks like I will be in fossil famine for a while before the bounty once they're old enough to get into it too.

 

I'd love to get out and hunt Mazon creek for a day, find a horseshoe crab or shark egg case for myself, and have enough plant material, jellyfish, and bivalves to give to my students for a project.
