  1. As I am tooooooooooooooooooo far away to visit myself this year, but love to see how it is going, is someone doing some pics from the show? The last years Troodon did, this year someone else has to fit the gap thanks
  2. So I'm sure there's a topic already posted covering how to best take pics for newbies - but I can't seem to find it! So, if anyone has links to said topics, I'd much appreciate them!
  3. I know some of the members here, have some really nice looking teeth. I'll start the thread with a few teeth, most likely to be Goblin Shark Teeth; found in Brandon, MS in the late 1970s / early 1980s. I was out looking with my father, when he found them.
  4. Like @JohnBrewer , I also purchased a new toy from AmScope. I purchased Item #UHM350-11 "Tabletop Digital Microscope with Variable Working Distance and 11" Articulating Arm". This piece also have two LED lighting rings.This was a great purchase for $270.00 and about 1000 times better that the $20 Plugable USB Microscope that I purchased before. I set it up and unfortunately I do not have an Micro SD card to capture the pics. I am not tech savy, so I will have to study it for a bit and see if I can actually hook it up to mu computer. Right now I have it hooked up to my TV with the "provided" HDMI cable. I took a few pics and will post below- I will use a pic that I made with my I Phone and then I will show pics from the microscope. WARNING- I took the pics off of my TV with my phone, so they will not be as sharp as I am seeing it live. Hopefully they will look great when saved on a Micro card. I Phone Pic Picture shot off of the TV Here is a great example of a Mazon Creek concretion with 2- Sea Cucumber mouths. I Phone Pic-
  5. I decided to take the time and try to shoot pictures of slides that I received years ago from my Fossil Mentor Walter Lietz. They are slides that he would show and talk about at the various Fossil talks that he would give prior to us taking the participants out collecting. This post may take me a couple days to complete due to the number of slides that I have to take pictures of. I have tried to do this before, but the machine I was using made it difficult. This time I am using a lighted hand held slide viewer and shooting them with my I Phone. It is tedious, since I then have to e-mail them to myself in a reduced size format and then save each one. Some will show up real good and some may not. The slides contain pictures of many of the fossils that were in his collection, as well as some that were in his friends, Francis Tully, of who the Tully Monster was named after. There are also slides that we received from Northwestern University’s Mazon Creek Project and probably some from other collections. This post is more as “Eye Candy”, as I will not be naming the individual slides. There will be a lot of different flora and fauna species to look at, as well as pictures of the collecting areas. I am going to post about 50 pictures now and I will try to take more pictures later in the day. They are in no particular order, I am shooting them as I grab them and I believe you will enjoy these. If you see something in particular that you find interesting and want to know what it is, let me know and I will try to help out, or another member may be able too. I figured that I would start with a couple pictures of Walter that were taken about 40 years ago. The first picture is of him out in the field collecting and the second is him in his garage standing by some of his display cases, he had tons of them. He entrusted me with his slides, knowing that I would always take care of them. These are the first time that they have been shown in maybe 20 years. Most of the slides that you will see throughout this post were taken in the early 70’s and 80’s. I hope you enjoy these. On with the fossils-
  6. North San Antonio area. Any thoughts on what these rocks are. Similar characteristics. Flat underside. Similar curve to right on some, to left on some.
  7. Its fossil Friday, so share a pic of your latest fossil acquisition, or prep. This is my latest prep project, a large Mioplosus from the Green River fm of Wyoming. Its not 100% finished but getting very close. Sadly it had already lost 1/2 to 2/3 of the tail before I found it, it has some damage to the rear dorsal fin, and the original break/exposure was through the head so it will take extra work to remove the glue used for an improvised field repair. I did learn a good lesson and will be bring proper consolidates and glues when I go fishing this year.
  8. Hey Folks, my presence has been a little light on here lately, I have been hanging around in TFF facebook as an admin and working on furthering my nascent paleo career. I hope you are all doing well, I certainly miss all my forum friends! I have been doing a little side project for a few months: writing Wikipedia pages for fossil Cartilaginous fish. It's one little way I can give back to the fossil community, so the next curious person doesn't have to go through the trouble of finding and accessing references and distilling information for obscure species as I have. It's also a task I find a little mindless and relaxing. Anyway, one problem I consistently run across is a lack of usable photos. While not strictly necessary, I think it is helpful to have a visual aid. Up until now, I have gone down the list alphabetically and contacted people to get pictures of teeth, but this is extremely tedious and I don't always get responses. So, I have a humble request! If you have shark or ray teeth from species or genera which do not yet have a picture and/or page on Wikipedia and you would be fine with it being used on one, upload a picture to Wikimedia Commons or post it in this thread and I can upload it. If you chose the former, let me know here so I can write a page on it or insert it into the proper article. If you chose the latter, it will be under my name (Mason Hintermeister) but I can credit you in the description. If you'd like me to do so, let me know what name you'd like to be credited as (You can PM me this information if you like). If you have fossils of species and genera which don't have Wikipedia pages which are not cartilaginous fish, I can upload them too and maybe even write a page for them. I'm not expecting a ton of responses here, but I like to think every new page and picture helps. Photographs are usually under a CC BY-SA 4.0 license, a fancy way of saying the photograph is usable by anyone provided they link the citation and they do not alter the photograph. If you upload it yourself, you have other options and if you have me upload it and you would like to use a different option just let me know. Thanks in advance!
  9. Recently, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a ban of 100% of non- essential workforce in New York State. Tomorrow evening, what he calls a "Pause" will go into effect. This means we will only be able to go to the grocery store, gas station, pharmacy, solitary exercise, and that's about it. I found out that my company falls under constuction, which makes us an essential workforce. So I will continue to work as well as my wife. We have already been staying home as much as possible but the prospect of this "Pause" going on indefinitely is kind of a bummer. I have seen some great diversion threads recently, so I decided to create another one. For the duration of this "Pause" I will post atleast one pic, maybe more everyday until the pause is over. Pics will be something fossil related, unless this goes on for so long I run out off fossil related items. At that point pics will be like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. Anybody can add to this thread and I encourage others to do so. I do not have an item picked out to post yet so pardon me for a few moments while I search for something to show.
  10. I always have fossils on my mind and today is no exception. I am currently at a conference in the former McDonald’s University in Oak Brook, Illinois and they have tons of limestone slabs are one of there lakes, but I did not see any fossils. Now on the inside they still have many display cases that contain various McDonald’s memorabilia (I.e. old uniforms, happy meal toys, etc.) and I happened to see the below items, I never had seen them in past years. It is nothing special, but it still is fossil related. I came back again today for the conference and I found this Orthoconic nautiloid. (See last pic)

    Larger Pics Of Baryonyx vertebra

    Here are some larger pictures of the "Baryonyx" vertebra. Sorry if they are tiny again.
  12. Hi all, a friend of mine has lost a fossil of almost $1,000 in value because the parcel was delivered to a different address (in the same country) even though he had a tracking code. The local postal company claimed that they delivered to the address as stated on the parcel and the tracking code. They refuse to tell my friend which address they sent to as that is confidential information. The seller meanwhile stated he wrote down the address exactly as my friend specified, and that he checked my friend's online and Paypal as well to triple confirm that was the correct address. Right now, the seller claims he wrote the correct address. The postal company claimed they delivered to the address they were given (which isn't my friend's address). Neither side is giving in much to my friend's horror. This headache would be solved if the seller had only taken a picture of the address he claimed to ship to. It only takes 10 secs to snap a picture, but it could save you a $1,000 disaster. Sellers, please take a picture of the box. Buyers, please request for a picture.
  13. Now that I have gained a little knowledge about paleontology, I am able to add some insight into questions forum members have. In providing information, I usually try to find images to support what I say. My question to you is what is the proper protocol for "stealing" a picture or text when found surfing for info on the internet? When do you recognize the contributor? I try to keep posts from becoming long winded and cut info to the bare minimum, but I feel I may be breaching proper protocol. HELP!!!
