    Bones, Bones, Bones! Show us some fossil bones!

    Here's one that I found early on in my collecting. I was not all that impressed, being convinced that, if I found this one so easily, there would be many more to find. This is the only such example I ever found.

    Sometimes I go about pitying myself, and all the time
    I am being carried on great winds across the sky.

    Spectacular.
    Wouldn't you know it find something so noteworthy and never come across another.
    Been there done that.


    Show some bones.....here's some.

    Here is some tiny verts from a specie of Upper Cret snake? (Arcadia Park member of the Eagleford)
    Wikipedia has them identified as a species of mossasaurid.

    A "Rock" on the ground is a "Specimen" when taken home.

    No, Perico, I don't know any sure way to ID phalanges to species level. Just call it Megalonyx sp., and you'll be correct.
