this site was found by my friend Steve Minkin, I never was there because Steve passed away in 2004 before my return in Usa.

I am sure the guys at http://www.alabamapaleo.org/Alabama_Paleontological_Society.html will help you

Regards

Matt,

Our own Forum member Rockin' Ric has a fairly nice collection.

You may want to shoot him a PM. Good luck on the research.

Regards,

EDIT: Link to his Ichno-Fossil Gallery

That's some gorgeous stuff coming out from Alabama. =) Not sure they're all amphibian trackways though. A real bonanza of goodies. =)

Just wanted to let you guys know that Matt had a great time in Alabama and made some amazing finds. He'll be posting something soon. He took thousands of pics!

Our club took part in a field trip day at Union Chapel this spring. It was a wonderful opportunity for us all. One of our members, Dr. Bob -- he really is a physician in Rome, GA -- found some incredible tracks of Attenosaurus on the side of a huge, 300+ pound boulder. It was fun watching him as he carefully calculated where to remove sections of the boulder, without damaging the tracks, to get it of a size that was transportable. Several guys finally managed that afternoon to get the still enormous boulder into the back of a 4-wheel-drive truck that drove out to it. Everyone found some goodies that day and had a great time. The neatest thing to me was a "stump" sitting beside the dirt road of an enormous calamites -- 2 feet high, a little more than a foot in diameter, great detail on it.

If you ever get an opportunity to attend one of the field trips there, by all means GO!
