Hi all, I ve kept busy during lockdown, prepping, iding, cataloging various stuff, some recently picked on the field, some picked like 15 years ago, some recently trade. So i think i would share the box that was out today waiting to be catalogued : from ordovican to burdigalian, with some jurassic, cretaceous aswell as some carbonifere ; some plant material, some ammonites, trilotibites, crabs, shark tooth and echinoids.....
Amazing day yesterday! @sharkdoctor and I spent all day at the Calvert Marine Museum’s collection sorting through and cataloging pieces of his collection either loaned or donated to the Museum. When I say amazing fossils, I mean it. Crabs, birds, whale material, possibly a new species of seal, teeth, turtle plates, and more. @sharkdoctoris a really cool guy because he focuses all on adding to science and not just trying to grow his own collection. Plus, he’s so informative! After completing the cataloging of his collection we proceeded to catalog some of Bretton Kent’s world class shark tooth collection. The incredible John Nance took us through the museums archives, showing us the only Hexanchus from Calvert, 3 inch makos, Gomphothere Teeth, rare species of shark, a whole crocodile, and other innumerable fossils that would be any collectors dream to have. Thank you John Nance, @sharkdoctorand the whole fossil community for building this up.
