And I meant to post this elsewhere, how do you move it to General?

Yes, yes you are an oreodontaholic. But there is a cure! Box them all up and send them to me and I’ll send you the cure!:P

( and I thought it was bad that I had 13 currently, am negotiating for 2 more, and thinking about trying to get even more!)

I think the biggest problem when they are unorganized is you can't see them all at once.  

 

For instance, there are 3 horses in the pile.  I knew I had them, but finding them in 3 different boxes was all but impossible.  When they are all together, its much easier to control.

 

It's scary to think of how many of them are half prepped too.  I see a lifetime or two of work here.

I think I have a brachiopod fixation. 

I have more than I can count. (ie. somewhat more than 10) 

And you're right, one can't possibly have too many. :D

I can count to 19 if I take my shoes off...

What fossils do you all collect too many of?  If there is such a thing.

In answer to your question - no, no I don't think so, no I don't believe so, NO there is no such thing.  Wonderful collection.  Are some of your skulls juvenile or infant?

I do have some infant/juvenile material.  It's fairly fragmentary.  Are you studying or looking for something in particular with them?

Just wondering, because some of the skulls (one on plate) look infant.  All I have is some eye sockets, some teeth and bones.

When you live alone, fossils dont always make the best snugglers. :unsure:

 

So do you display these things or just have wall to wall boxes?

I have two cats, named Dinaelurus and Miracinonyx.  They keep me on my toes.

Display cases are in the planning stages still.  Just getting the collection to the house here first.

A bit closer up for you.  I do have some infant/fetal material but it is pretty scrappy like your description.  I'm not sure how fast they grow after birth but this is probably double the size of my smallest material.  The molars are already starting to come in and the milk teeth are gone.  Someday I'll clean it up a bit more, this is how it arrived to the collection.

Definitely a nice specimen.  I would have to tidy it up just a bit and display it.  It's not too often you see one this small and nice!

PS:  My cats do exactly the same thing as yours...…  They have to be right in the middle of anything I'm doing - to supervise I guess.
