That's splendid news!! Congratulations!!! I'd imagine it's such a great honour to have one of your finds be declared as Danekræ! :D

Was the renowned Danish paleontologist Jesper Milàn or Bent Lindow?

You ought to post your donation in the Fossil Contributions to Paleontology Gallery, I'm sure it would earn you the much deserved Paleo-Partner badge on TFF :)

It was Jesper Milàn who handled the tooth, and also gave me the message today. The official announcement will come by mail later, from Bent Lindow though :)

Very cool! Always great when any find Scientifically Important Specimen (SIS) is found by amateur fossil hunters and makes its way into the hands of the experts who recognize its importance.

When you have the information back as to what institution the chimaera tooth will be going to, remember to post the relevant information in the Fossil Contributions to Paleontology gallery:

Congratulations on the Danakrae.  That system is such a great system to encourage both public awareness and involvement in paleo as well as the advancement of science.  Right on, DK!

Yes! I think it is a nice way of both getting people involved in paleontology, but also a really good system to actually make people WANT to hand in the finds, that potentially could be of use to the scientific community. It's often seen in other countries, that you can freely keep everything you find, and just deny the scientists of a potentially important fossil. And obviously the reason why some people won't hand these finds in, is because they likely "only" will get their name credited to the fossil, but nothing else. I would still hand in an important fossil even if there wasn't a "reward" like here in Denmark. But I think the premise of there being a reward for you, should you find something, is a great way to make people want to hand in the fossils. It is sort of a competition for some of the amateur fossil-hunters here in Denmark; "Who can find the most Danekræ?" :dinosmile:

I am going to dig there again two times this year. 4 days in July, and 7 days in October :dinothumb: so I'm crossing my fingers for some dinosaur material :)
