New York fossil trip by mail


Recommended Posts

A while back, @Darktooth and I did a little trading. Somewhere in the mix, he mentioned that his educational outreach (and collection) would benefit from some examples of C. chubutensis. I sent a couple of examples and it seems all that cuspy goodness went to his head. I received a COVID care package from Dave a week or so ago that contained a complete New York fossil trip in a box! I was completely blown away and the objects have given me quite a bit of entertainment. The field-trip-in-a-box was complete with lovely hand written tags, so everything was ready to put right into a large riker box.

 

No way Dave could have known this, but my family has been self-quarantined because my son had a known COVID exposure. This care package has been a welcome distraction, to say the least!

 

My absolute favorite is the Grammysioidea. I'd seen these in past posts and online. They are just as cool in person as in pictures.

 

Thanks for the awesome collection and distraction Dave!

Very cool! I knew I liked Dave @Darktooth. Don't tell him I said so, it may go to his head. ;) 

I hope all turns out well with your son, and the rest of the family.

Thanks Fossilnerd. Some would say that I have a big enough head already.:D

Good to see that Middle Devonian Hamilton Group Deep Springs Road Quarry material making the rounds. In my view it is an extraordinarily rich portrait of Paleozoic marine life.
