    This is a neat display at the Museum of the Rockies that contrasts the adult Maiasaurus with its hatchling. #fossil

    While traveling through Canada last week, I had the opportunity to watch the incredible tide changes at the Bay of Fundy. Check out the Time Scavengers blog for Geology information of this area! #collectionsite

    Intact extinct elephant bird egg from the University of Michigan Museum of Paleontology vertebrate paleo collection. Specimen 60611. There are very few of these left intact! #fossil

    I love this Florida Geological Survey map! Amazing to see where different parts of geologic history are preserved throughout Florida.

    Here’s something you don’t see everyday, again from the Wyoming Dinosaur Center: a congenital malformation that fused two vertebrae together in an Apatosaurus! #fossil

    Modern bones help us ID fossil ones! We use this modern slider turtle shell to help students examine fossil turtle bone pieces, and figure out what part of the turtle they came from. #method

    This is a bisaccate grain. The two blobs on top are called sacci and are filled with air making it easier for the pollen to be dispersed by wind. It sort of looks like Mickey Mouse right? Today there are only two families that have bisaccate grains (both are conifers). The Podocarpaceae which is native to only the Southern Hemisphere today and the Pinaceae which includes the pines. #fossil

    This is another 44 million year old pollen fossil but a different site in Oregon. It is triculpate (three slit openings) but to me what makes it interesting are the fossa, large divits in the grain wall. These are original (not caused by taphonomic processes or deformation caused by processing the material). Don’t know what it is though. #fossil

    My first fossil hunt was 7 years ago at Rockford recreation center in Alpena Michigan. Carrying the tradition by taking my little sister! Only 10 years old and she’s already asking the big questions. #collection_site
