  2. Whale inner ear?

    Pfft Dude, I gots mad pottery skills. Hahaha my whole grade 10 art profile was based on Egyptian canopic jars haha. Yea I’m thinking modern too. It’s a neat educational piece for the kiddos

  4. Fossil fish

    Poor Tony/Ynot, he was just trying to help. You shouldn't abuse him for that!
  5. Congratulations You could make the most out of this build in cabinet. I think your Eurypterids plate would great on the top. You could line and segment the draws into compartments. The flat pack Swedish company does plenty of different lighting cheapish. Maybe make some stands for your fossil displays . Good luck . Bobby
  6. My trilobite of the week.

    Gerry, along with Bruce Lieberman, and Carlton Brett are all in the loop with regard to my research on this little fella. I'm trying to do it right
  7. Whale inner ear?

    Looks more like a failed attempt at a flower pot you made in ceramics class! I'm thinking modern.
  8. Whale inner ear?

    Anyone know if this is more recent or how to tell if it’s fossilized
  9. Whale inner ear?

    Lucky for me my kiddo already did that in the shop and she said there was a woodpecker and a t-rex in there
  10. Whale inner ear?

    As I understand it, if you put it up to your ear you can hear whale songs. But you have to do it in a crowded area so everyone can see you or it won't work!
  11. Ptychodus Tooth ID

    That’s the problem I’m having, I’m not qualified to make an ID. I have seen that good guide from your link, abyssunder pointed me to Hamm 2005, and I have a book by Welton and Farrish called “fossil sharks and rays” of Texas, that is also great.
  12. Congrats! Definitely think of some kind of padding to stock the lower drawers for spare specimens with some boxes (think map drawer). Get some lighting in those cabinets for some display pieces. Rope or pocket lights might work here. The middle centre area is just begging for a huge single display piece: either a multi-plate of trilobites or a huge ammonite!
  13. Amazingly Small Osteoderm

    This is a very interesting thread and covers many different, but related animals: In the Peace River , we commonly find Glyptodon osteoderms and Armadillo osteoderms. The 2 animals are related. This is generally agreed to be Gyyptotherium Floridanum: I have found these frequentlyup to the size of baseball. This is Armadillo: You have many that look like this. I find a lot of them. The discussion in this thread is what is this fossil found near Payne Creek Park. Is it Glyptodon or Armadillo ? Turns out it is Armadillo... I am certain that my photo on the right matches your Armadillo scutes, but what about the photo on the left?.
  14. WM Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park - ID Help Needed

    I agree. The 4th is probably a sand tiger, something like Carcharias samhammeri.
  15. Wow is right... You sure had an impressive collection, Joe. (I guess you still do, but even more so before) I only wish they hadn't used 'iss' to give the pronunciation of words that end in 'us'..like 'cry-niss' for crinus! Gimme a break!
  16. Fossil fish

    Great fish detail and great gift, enjoy!
  17. Whale inner ear?

    Yes you are correct, Inner ear bone to a whale, Tympanic Bulla.
  18. Hey everyone!! Im very excited to say me and my fiancé closed on a house last week . We have some renovation plans (small plans I hope) and then we move in! The house has this awesome built in china cabinet or something idk what it was technically for. There is some wires in there to get some lights but I’m curious what other people have for display cases in their homes. I bet there are some low cost LED lights out there. How do you guys like to do your displays? Heres what I have to work with. I feel like it has potential! Thanks for any ideas/tips and thanks to anyone who shares their display area set ups. Al
  19. Whale inner ear?

    Moby Dick's hearing aid!
  20. Fossil fish

    That must have been one killer coprolite.... poor fish didn't get very far afterwards..
  21. The Pull of the Present... interesting. The fact that more recent sediments remain than old sediments might be one factor in that. I guess this is why our timescale tends to look logarithmic!
  22. Scalarituba

    If you want to send me some Euros, I won't argue.
  23. Anybody know bugs?

    Looks like my buggy lil friend may be a midge. Anybody got a DNA lab? Maybe we can make some dinos...
  24. Rapp beach hunting

    I think the 450 million dollar mother-lode was worth the wait, don't you? You have to have patience for treasure and fossil hunting.
  25. Species Name Changes Against ICZN Code

    George was a musician's musician.
  26. Scalarituba

    You can also leave the penny and add how high and wide the photo is in mm. We are here to help you. Help us by providing us with good measurements and a positive attitude.
  27. Scalarituba

    Don't know which one of the the trace fossils support that characteristics, maybe something in the line of the genus Cosmoraphe, but I'm not sure.
