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.

 

Multiple plant specimens donated to Smithsonian.

left fourth metatarsal of a large Anoplotherium

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

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.
