  2. My Trilobite Drawings

    I quite like drawing like this as it makes you focus on the negative space so the shape is generally more accurate, your drawings are fabulous, if I have time I might also attempt some fossil drawings
  3. New Mazon Creek Collection

    Thanks, RC! I appreciate the cleaning advice.
  4. Oligocene Galeorhinids

    I neglected to complete the reference: Reinecke T., H. Stapf. & M. Raisch, 2001. Die Selachier und Chimären des unteren Meeressandes und Schleichsandes im Mainzer Becken (Alzey- und Stadecken Formation, Rupelium, Unteres Oligozän). Palaeontos 1.

  5. Ichthyosaur Tail Fossil

    Still real. Here’s a before prep shot. The shale will have delaminated during prepping which is why you can seen that line. I know the person who found and prepped them. It’s not worth faking.
  6. Ichthyosaur Tail Fossil

    In my opinion it would be a very difficult fossil to fake, especially to put the vertebrae like that in the matrix so they’re properly embedded. Not even talking about the small rib bones.
  7. Back To The Hunt Now That Summer Is Gone!

    Fantastic specimens I too like Carboniferous material and in particular Lycopods. none of my specimens are close to the quality of yours
  8. Ichthyosaur Tail Fossil

    Looks fine to me honestly.
  9. Aaron, This publication covers a fauna from the Early Oligocene of Germany but I've found it very helpful with Oligocene-Early Miocene teeth from anywhere. Jess Reinecke T., H. Stapf. & M. Raisch, 2001. Die Selachier und Chimären des unteren Meeressandes und Schleichsandes im Mainzer Becken (Alzey- und Stadecken Formation, Rupelium, Unteres Oligozän). Palaeontos 1. 1-73. Palaeo Publishing and Library vzw. Antwerp. Translation: Sharks and Chimaeras from the Lower Meeressandes and Schleichsandes in the Mainz Basin (Alzey and Stadecken Formation, Rupelian, lower Oligocene). Quote Options
  10. I also see red flags.. cutline along the vert string and the matrix color on vert string is lighter than the plate. All real agree but could the verts have been added to enhance appeal ? Best to hold an item like this or if purchased insure it can be returned.

  12. I also think it is real.

  17. Happy Fossil Friday

    You would have had to purchase a ticket for it and ordered it a veggie meal. Beautiful fossil btw do you have a photo of yours.
  18. Happy Fossil Friday

    Agree my favorite. About 8 years ago there were 2 of them for sale at Tucson. They were huge and at that time I was living in the east so I had to pass. They would not fit in the overhead compartment Have never seen them again but I do have one in my collection.
  19. Hi all, I recently got this crab as a gift from a Burmese friend. He said it came from the Rakhine State, western shore of Myanmar. He said his friend found it there. Unfortunately, neither of them kept any extra provenance detail about it. I can find no info whatsoever about this crab online. I don't think Myanmar fossils outside of amber have easily accessible documentation. This crab looks like it might be a Galene bispinosa. Does anyone know what species it is, and what age or formation it possibly came from? Thank you.
  20. Need ID for Comanche Peak limestone fossils

    The other photos, as promised earlier. Thank you for your patience. "Intelligence is the art of good guesswork." - H.B. Barlow
  21. Small mammal jaw bone I.D.

    Remember, there is a marshy area that drains into the river at that beach. Always check it for fossils by the way.
