What an inspirational story reflecting the best of what avocational collectors can bring to the table! Some people are "amateur" only in the sense that they aren't paid to work on fossils, but they are "professional" in their interest, knowledge, and desire to contribute to the science.

We do well to publicize the fact that there are 'amateurs' who can recognize a find as different, and pursue their curiosity to fruition! This is the dedication that secures new knowledge. :)

Thank you, gentlemen...and Lady. :D

Finding cool stuff is a lot of fun; but as many others on the Forum have shown, so is advancing the science of what we know about the past.
