Nicely presented Andy like all your other displays.  I chuckled when I saw that you added a Spinosaurid tooth to your assemblage

Lovely @-Andy- :) I could only imagine how difficult it was to amass all of these but it was worth it! The information provided with each taxon was very informative and I learned quite a bit!

Awesome collection.

 

Have you thought about including Protosphyraena?

Wow, Andy!  What a collection and what a presentation!  This would make any museum envious.  I'm saving this post and printing out two copies to give to each of my grandsons who I know will enjoy it as much as I did.  Thank you for putting this collection and its presentation together and for sharing it with us.

Great job Andy! Glad to see you spending your Covid downtime well. You’re getting married soon though and I hope that this doesn’t stop your passion for a Fossils. Haha!

Fantastic collection and presentation of great educational value. It's very good it all fitted into a not-so-big box for even better effect per cubic inch:D

 

A few thoughts: I wouldn't place mosasaurs with ichthyosaurs and pliosaurs as they replace the latters and would add more fishes like Acrodus/Cretodus/Chimaera, ammonites and belemnites (why not?). Also didn't Ptychodus teeth look more like this?:

There are many species of Ptychodus.  Yours and Andy's a re different species. 

 

Nice work, Andy.

Thank you for the kind comments guys. It means a lot to me that you appreciate this thread.

 

In case anyone is wondering, here is ver 1 and ver 2 of the box from years ago.

Thanks Frank. No way I can exclude the famous Spino. I wish I could put one of the Brazilian Spinosaurids which were found at coastal environments, but the Moroccan Spinosaurid is the next best thing.

I did. Unfortunately, there just isn't enough space in the box. There's so many more species of fish and sharks I want to include.

I am so happy to hear that I made something good enough for you to pass to your grandsons!

No way man. Fossils are a part of my life now.

I've thought of including more creatures and invertebrates like ammonites but the box has ran outta place. I think 20.25 inches is as big as it gets.
