    I’m seeing that we have many new members of this group. Does anyone have any mammals fossils that they have found at the Belgrade mine from North Carolina?  If so, send me photos, or upload them to our EMUSEUM. I then can explain why they are interesting.

    • I’m here in Craven County, NC but turned down a chance to go into Belgrade. (Didn’t think there were mammals there.)

      • Oh yes, and they are very interesting–I study ancient mammals that lived on land. At Belgrade these include horses, carnivores, rodents, tiny deer-like mammals, peccary, giant pig-like mammals, and possibly rhino. These are otherwise found from other early Miocene (about 20 million years old) localities elsewhere in the US, including California,…[Read more]

    Hi all–given the fact that we met just this past Thursday, lets make today’s lab meeting at 10:40 optional. What this means is that I will connect then and if anyone wants to talk OK, but you do not have to–if you have other things to do.

    For those of you who are interested, we will again use the link below.…[Read more]

    • Sounds good, Bruce. I will probably not connect today, as we are still scrambling to get everything straightened out for the online transition of the bio lab.

    Hi Rene, this is from an invertebrate. It’s either the part of a hinge of a clam or part of the feeding apparatus (called aristotle’s lantern) of a sea urchin. I’m sure with some photos from different angles, we could say which of the two it is.

    @jbauer do you agree / can you tell which it is?

    Here is the journal I think we should submit to as a lab. I would like to know who wants to be involved and and then, perhaps, we can schedule a meeting to figure out how we want to divide up the…[Read more]

    • I’m happy to contribute-

    • I would love to help too!

    • Sounds like a great opportunity for all of use to collaborate and publish on the culmination of our individual projects! Moving forward, Victor and I discussed having a short meeting to strategize what each of our contributions would look like. This being said, would everyone have 30 minutes or so prior to or after our next Paleo Tutorial meeting…[Read more]

    Hi all–confirming our lab meeting today in 221 CRR at 10:40. Looking forward to catching up, Bruce

    • I am doing a Skype call with an Escambia county school this morning so I am not sure that I will make it to campus in time for lab meeting.

    Another photo from the natural history museum in Mine City, Japan. There was a whole wall of cases with rodent fossils. This case is mostly jaws and skulls. #fossil

    Visited a natural history museum in Mine City, Japan. Was hoping to go collecting but unfortunately they closed the fossil site 🙁 #fossil

    I’m sorry I don’t really understand what you are asking. I don’t know what “authorities” you are worried about, but I cannot tell you about the legality of what you found from any photo or video. You may have to bring it to a museum and speak to someone in person.

    My assumption is that it is not a fossil, but there really is no way I can confirm that from a photo. There’s no scale bar in your photo, but it appears that the bone is too small to be from a hominid (human or neanderthal).

    Does look like a tibia, but I can’t tell if it is a fossil or modern from the photo. Does it feel very dense or light?

    Class is officially over today, and I had not planed to meet. If you want to talk with me otherwise, feel free to set up a meeting. I leave for the holiday vacation on 18 December.

    Hard to tell from the photo, but might be a fragment of a scallop shell.
