    Hi Paul–Thanks for your Forum post. I am sorry that it has taken me a few days to respond.

    I always like to learn about new discoveries of fossil horses. Yes, the tooth that you found is of Equus. It is an upper molar in moderate wear, meaning that it was from an advanced adult (not juvenile or senior citizen).

    Fossil Equus teeth are not surprizing for North Carolina, but any new discovery adds to our knowledge base. If you have photos of it with a ruler (for scale) and upload it to our FOSSILS gallery, it will contribute new knowledge to science through this occurrence. Do you know if other fossil horses, or other Ice Age mammals have been found at the same locality?  This would be interesting as well.

    I really appreciate your interest in this fossil and wanting to connect with us via this forum!  I’d be happy to correspond with you more about this.

    Andy Zimmerman, UF geology prof (and Moonshot participant) has developed a very successful GeoGators outreach program. He needs someone to present as indicated below. Anyone available to help? If so, let me and Andy ([email protected]) ASAP, thanks–Bruce.

    Hi All – I have a request for geology presentations for two events [Bruce–the other one has been filled], both on Wednesday morning:

     

    • 1/30/19 – Newberry Elementary – Education Fair – 3rd Grade – 8:00-12:30

     

    As always, These are very fun, require no prior experience, and I will provide you with everything you need.

    Please let me know if you can do at least a 2 hour time slot on either of these. It would be great if you and a geo-buddy can take one of these events together

    Thanks – Andy

    So then, it seems like we can meet from 11:45 until 12:35 on Wednesdays?  If not one responds to the contrary, then we will do this. I will find a room.

    OK, send me any times that you cannot make a lab meeting on Wednesday. We will not meet tomorrow because not everyone is available.

    • I would prefer the afternoon over the morning because I have time scheduled with undergrads in the lab but if morning works better for everyone else I can try to reschedule them.

    • I’m no longer officially signed up, but would still like to join if that’s okay? I could meet anytime Wednesdays except ~1 – 1:30 pm.

    • If our lab meeting is scheduled before 1:00pm it works for me. I TA on wednesdays at 3:00 so I would like some time to prep.

    • I should be free anytime on Wednesdays

    Yes, if we can find a time.

    Could we meet at 11:45 on Thursday, 10 January. OR

    Could we meet at 12:45 on Thursday, 10 January?

    If so, I’ll find a place. Only respond if you cannot make either (both) of these.

    Back with a fieldtrip for the Soc Vert Paleo mtg where we collected camels and horses from New Mexico. Brings back good memories of GABI RET 6. We collected here at White Operations quarry. #fossil #event #collectionsite

    Photo challenge and prize!

    I need a hi-res (>300 dpi) photo of someone giving a talk to a fossil club. This is for my book. It would be best if the photo is focused on you, and not the audience (then I do not have to worry about permission, other than yours). And I would need to know and have permission from the photographer.  The photo that I was going to use is low res (see “Files” upload today), plus I would prefer someone else but me.

    The prize is that if we can find one, then I will buy lunch for the entire lab group at La Tienda. Any takers?

    There is no rush, and we can talk about this at our next lab meeting in two weeks.

    I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday at 11 am (that I cannot get out of) before class. It is unlikely that I will be back to campus in time for the start of class. I will text folks when I am heading back to campus, probably around noon. Likely we will need to meet closer to 12:15–12:30.

    Does anyone have a class thereafter in which they cannot meet later next Tuesday, as described above. Because of upcoming meetings, it is important that we meet.

    You only need to answer if you cannot meet later, Bruce
