Some of you have been following my unique fossil finds for some time now, and others have provided amazing help in trying to identify what I have found. It appears that my collection is both unique and important to science in the study of Carboniferous fossils, so rather than keep them under a tarp in my yard, I decided to find them a permanent home. The Smithsonian came and packed up (5) 4'x4' crates and they have now been transported and officially donated to them. I also look forward to seeing the paper that is being written on them published, and thank you Paul for all your work! What an amazing journey, and hope that it is not over yet..This is just one of the many fossils donated.

left fourth metatarsal of a large Anoplotherium

Oligocene

Bouldnor Cliff, Isle of Wight

Donated as requested by Natural History Museum, London, England

They were missing this particular toe bone of a nearly complete specimen in their collection, it turns out this was from a different larger animal.

Brittle Star

Artiodactyl bone

Oligocene

Hamstead, Isle of Wight

Donated as requested when taken there for identification, they asked for it as it the shape could not be matched to anything they had so not sure what it was from.

I know it's not nice to gloat about one's good deeds, but since TFF assigned a special place for that :D, it would be silly not to use the opportunity to share with others.

Today I delivered to the Geological Museum in Warsaw a part of my collection that I decided to donate to them - I didn't know that I should take a picture of the specimens donated, so in the attachment a picture from another event showing a part of fossils that went to the Museum and a thank you letter from them. The collection comprised both Polish, as well as foreign specimens. I hope to see them one day on display :fingerscrossed:

I have looked at the fossil you sent in for identification.  Based on size and anatomy of the distal end its best match is a metatarsal of the giant beaver. I also compared it to a modern beaver and some images of fossil beaver metatarsals.  It is the fourth metatarsal. We do not have any examples of this particular bone of Castoroides in our collection.  Because of this I would like you to consider donating it to the museum’s collection. But if you prefer not to, let me know and I will return it to you soon.

Cheers, Richard
