    Brachiopod internal morphology diagram at the request of mackenzie-smith. I did my best to get the big aspects of morphology! #fossil

    The dreaded but incredibly important internal morphology! I can work on that!

    Brachiopod graphic that includes some information about photography and morphology! Key point to remember for photography is that the hinge goes toward the top of the image. Let me know if you have suggestions for future graphics. I can dive into more morphological terms! #fossil

    Is it from a shark? @jeanette-pirlo?

    Haha! No, just the specimen is submerged. Usually just in a small tin or Tupperware.

    Fossil coral from the Devonian seas of Indiana! This was a gift from my friend @sarah-sheffield. Corals make their skeletons of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) but this fossil is preserved as silica (SiO2). Replacement is a form of fossil preservation that occurs when the original skeletal chemical composition is replaced with a new chemical compound. In this case CaCO3 to SiO2! #fossil

    Definitely! Looks awesome! Sometimes playing around with exposure, brightness, and a few other misc. tools really make specific features pop that you didn’t see before. I’ve also dabbled with under water photography- super helpful for seeing plate boundaries in echinoderms but bubbles are your enemy!!!

    What do you think this tooth is from? Am I right to guess it is from marine deposits?

    Large reprints of Ernst Haeckel’s ‘Cystoidea’ and ‘Blastoidea’ plates (multiple specimens or images on a single large figure). For one of my qualifier exam questions I had to describe each species on the blastoid plate and discuss issues with past interpretations of shape and form! #fossil

    Hi, Troy! Looks like a cephalopod to me! I can sort of make out the siphuncle (tube within the stacked chambers) and it appears to be not central – which is an identification clue.

    Great to hear! Sometimes comments get lost into the ether and I’ve been trying to make sure things stay visible =]

    Vindlandostrophia ponderosa specimens from Georgetown, Ohio. A particularly enjoyable trip with Adriane Lam- no field sites selected, we just drove around and stopped at various outcrops! #fossil
